Vol State students can begin APSU's communication arts program this fall by enrolling in Communication in Organizations (COM 4020) and/or Media Ethics (COM 4600), which are scheduled for 6-9 p.m., on Mondays and Wednesdays, respectively.

Hoppe says, “TBR Chancellor Manning and VSCC President Warren Nichols are to be commended for their initiative in creating a collaborative effort that will result in more convenient access to baccalaureate degrees for students in VSCC's service area.

“By partnering with several TBR universities, VSCC is opening the door for degree advancement for its graduates. This will help raise the educational level of the region in a very cost effective way since the universities involved will use their existing faculty or highly qualified VSCC faculty to teach the courses.”
