After finishing my A.A. degree at Florida State College at Jacksonville it took me one year to decide on a Bachelor’s degree. After one year of comparing different degrees I noticed the “New” icon next to the Converged Communications program. Low and behold, this was the program for me. I have an interest in politics as well as community activism. There are several Concentrations offered by FSCJ. The Concentration in Political and Cause Campaigns struck a cord with me.
What is Converged Communications?
Converged Communications is radio and television technology and corporate communications.
FSCJ states that, “The mission for the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Converged Communications is to provide students with a diverse foundation of skills and abilities on which to build a successful career through advancement in the workplace or furthering their education at the graduate level. The program focuses on a converged communications core comprised largely of persuasive writing, news media, e-commerce, digital media, and the effective use of the Internet. Critical thinking skills, as well as skills in communication, quantitative and organizational/systems applications are also emphasized.”
Some courses I have learned a great deal through this program are: Writing for Digital Media, International Business, New Communication Technology and Contemporary Society, and Public Relations. This semester I will learn more about Law and Ethics in Communication, Assembling Digital Media, Marketing, and Media Research and Analytics. I am glad to have found my niche and am looking forward to taking advantage of all I have learned and applying it in my future career.
