New Communications Degree Approved
May 25, 2017
At the latest meeting of the Arkansas Department of Higher Education Coordinating Board in Russellville, Ark., University of Arkansas Cossatot’s new transfer communications degree was approved.
Through collaborative efforts of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) and UA Cossatot, any student who has earned the Associate of Science in Liberal Arts & Sciences degree at UA Cossatot will be admitted to earn the Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication at UALR with full junior classification.
UALR’s Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications includes study options of media production, motion picture, strategic communication, journalism, or mass media.
UA Cossatot Vice Chancellor Ashley Aylett remarks, “This new alignment with UALR makes our already good radio broadcast program great. We have students currently working in our local public radio stations. This will add more students that can finish locally while seamlessly transferring to UALR to expand their radio knowledge, go into journalism, production, or even motion picture work.”
