Concentration in Communication
The Concentration in Communication provides students with skills in applied communications. Students develop competence in areas such as professional writing, public relations theory and practice, management communications, marketing writing, and visual communication. Completion of the Concentration will provide students with a valuable skill-set, applicable to every potential career.
The Concentration will be of interest to degree students who are looking to strengthen their principal credential. Students enrolled in a four-year degree program at Okanagan College (i.e. the Bachelor of Business Administration or Bachelor of Computer Information Systems) can apply credits earned in the completion of electives in these programs toward a transcript notation awarding them a Concentration in Communication. These students may also apply six credits of first-year Communications or English earned in the completion of their principal credential toward the Concentration notation.
The program allows for flexible completion and for student choice. Students can choose to register in whichever of the available Communications and English courses are of most interest to them.
- The Concentration in Communication will be granted upon the successful completion of 18 credits, including six credits of first-year Communications or English, and 12 additional credits of Communications, of which at least nine credits must be from courses numbered 300 or higher.
- Students may apply six credits of first-year Communications or English earned in the completion of their principal credential toward the Concentration notation.
