COMMUNICATION ARTS DEPARTMENT

The Communication Arts department offers intensive courses in the Interactive Media and Broadcast/Video Production Pathways.  As freshmen, students become proficient in basic computer applications and gain knowledge of the communication system through applying and transferring their academic knowledge and skills to a variety of interesting activities, problems, and settings.  Next, students develop skills in information technology through a course titled Computing in the Modern World, where they learn about software systems management, operating systems, data communications, and the Internet.  Students explore their creativity when taking classes geared towards digital media production and web design.  Broadcast and video production courses provide advanced training in video production techniques, including program production, editing, lighting, and graphics.  Students in Communication Arts also have the opportunity to take Journalism I and II which is the newspaper staff, and Journalism III-IV, which is yearbook staff.  We are pleased to announce that we are in the beginning stages of adding Introduction to Graphics to our Program of Study.  It is our hope that this course will intensify the quality of our students work in our web design courses. 

Communication Arts majors are required to participate in Future Business Leaderships of America.  FBLA is an education association of students preparing for careers in business and business related fields.  The mission of FBLA is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs.  Our FBLA chapter is well known throughout the state of Georgia and we compete on the national level each year.
