Associate of Science Degree Programs with Disciplinary Distinction in Chemistry

Chemistry is a very central science. For this reason, chemistry is an excellent choice to include as a double major with another subject. Students majoring in biology, nursing or engineering often choose chemistry as another major. Education majors who would like to teach science find chemistry to be an excellent double major. Those interested in criminal justice may also take chemistry as a double major due to its importance in forensics. Business majors with an interest in science have taken chemistry as another major with the plan of working for a chemical company in the future. Students pursuing a pre-professional program, such as pre-pharmacy, pre-dentistry or pre-medical, would also benefit greatly from chemistry as a double major.

Associate of Arts Degree Programs with Disciplinary Distinction in Communication Arts

Let's Get Associated.

Georgia’s creative economy consists of 11,426 establishments, consisting of 116, 577 jobs, generating $8.4 billion in wages with 58,959 self employed individuals. This economy consists of earnings totaling $1.6 billion dollars and an annual revenue of $29 billion dollars (information sourced from the Georgia Council for the Arts publication titled Georgia’s Creative Economy).

Upon completion of this program, students will:

  • Demonstrate a high level of proficiency in at least one area of Communication Arts or basic proficiency in more than one area.
  • Demonstrate the ability to understand history and major movements of at least one area of Communication Arts.
  • Demonstrate the ability to identify specific genres of Communication Arts and to place these genres into historical and cultural perspective.

Assessment will likely take one of two tracks depending upon the track the student chooses, Portfolio or Individual Student Evaluations:

  1. Portfolio

On the Portfolio track, students will be taking the course COMM 2001:  Communication Arts Portfolio. Those portfolios will be evaluated by a Review Committee from within the School of Humanities, consisting of two Communications Faculty members, two English Faculty members, and two from other disciplines. This review committee will evaluate each portfolio using a common rubric to determine level of proficiency. As a whole, these portfolios will be used to evaluate one aspect of the program, proficiency of completing students. These students will also undergo interview and other common assessments in order to measure success in other areas. Additionally, specific courses will be used to evaluate other aspects of the program, including major historical periods and movements, historical and cultural perspectives.

  1. Student Interviews

Although perhaps slightly more subjective than the Portfolio evaluations, Student Interviews for students who choose the Production track, will be the primary methods of measuring “proficiency.” Again, Review Committees using common rubrics will be used to evaluate proficiency of completing students. As described above, other assessments will be used to measure learning outcome attainment in other areas, notably historical movements, periods, and cultural perspectives.
