Our mission is to use theory and practice to help how journalists report and write for a variety of publications and understand the value of a free press in America. We strive to help students achieve an AA or AS or transfer to other institutions of higher learning and be prepared for the opportunities that may exist. The department also operates a weekly student newspaper, the Coast Report, the website coastreportonline. com and regularly posts a variety of multimedia productions. Classes are open to students of all majors. The new AA-T for Journalism directly aligns with many of these goals and objectives: achieving an AA and transferring to an institution of higher educa- tion. It is also designed to give students a broad perspective on the options they might select at the 4-year level and help prepare them for their transfer goals. They will also be prepared to work on any campus publication or website with journalistic confidence and experience.
