Mass Media

Mass Media programs at Amarillo College are focused on preparing students for viable careers in an evolving media field. To that end, students enrolled in a two-year mass media program are challenged to master basic media skills and to apply those skills within a converged media environment. Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees are designed to satisfy the first two years of a four-year program at a senior institution. Other degrees and certificates prepare students for entry-level positions in social media, online marketing, radio and television stations, newspapers and magazines, production houses and advertising agencies, and much more.
