With the advent of the internet and the spread of mobile phones, the communication profession has changed. Our words move faster and reach more people than in any other time in history. Technology changes rapidly, and so our communications platforms and techniques much change as well. The Journalism & Communication program at LCCC is designed to keep up with this fast-moving world and provide real-world training in modern communication tools. Of course, it also exposes you to the time-tested truths of communication and delivers a well-rounded education.

The Journalism & Communication program offers one-year certificates, but many classes in this program can also apply to other programs in the Liberal & Creative Arts pathway.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students. 

The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
