This major is built off of an articulation agreement, a specialized agreement between a four-year university, in this case, Eastern Michigan University, and a community college. Faculty from both schools collaborated to design an agreement that facilitates the smooth transfer of course credit from a two-year associate’s degree program to a four-year bachelor’s degree program.
This agreement is effective Fall 2019 - Summer 2022. Students have until Summer 2027 to graduate from Eastern Michigan University using this agreement.
Communication Technology is the process of designing, constructing, managing and maintaining communication technologies; i.e. print, video and digital media, the internet, wireless networks, cell phones and other communication mediums. The Bachelor of Science
