The Humanities, English, Language, and Communication Studies Pathway fits well for students who think critically and creatively and enjoy writing, speaking, research, and engaging in broader conversations with academic, community, and professional audiences. Academic programs in this pathway can lead to diverse careers in public relations, human resources, the law, editing, writing, and journalism, as well as careers in public service and the non-profit sector. Graduates with these skills are in high demand by employers in a variety of fields and in graduate professional programs.
The pathway associate degree is designed to help students deciding on their academic and career goals to identify an area of interest. It is also designed for students who are interested in transferring to a college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree in an area where GRCC does not have an academic program. This degree can be customized to meet individual student’s needs. It also allows students to fulfill general education and graduation requirements at GRCC and transfer to a 4-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree.
Transfer Programs are designed to fulfill GRCC general education and graduation requirements and prepare students to transfer to a college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree.
