"SCCC is an amazing place to get an education- for students right out of high school or returning after many years."
The Broadcasting Option is designed to empower students with the proper skills and knowledge to seek careers in the many phases of the media industry including television and film, radio and audio production, broadcast journalism and video production. In addition, students are prepared for enrollment into four-year institutions.
Students acquire the technical knowledge supported by a strong basis in theory and creativity. They prepare for entry level positions as directors, camera operators, composers, audio engineers, writers and on-air talent within the industry. The Broadcasting option provides graduates with real world experience through the facilities of EDTV20 the college’s educational broadcast facility and our web-based radio station.

The Liberal Arts AA at SCCC is designed for students who wish to transfer into 4-year Bachelor of Ars programs. In September 2008, the governor and state legislature created a law that established a statewide transfer agreement for students transferring with a degree from a New Jersey community college to a New Jersey public four-year college or university. Students can now seamlessly transfer their academic credits from a completed community college Associate of Arts (A.A.) to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or from a completed Associate of Science (A.S.) to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree program at New Jersey’s public four-year colleges and universities. Our Counseling & Advising Center can help you with transfer questions. More information on this opportunity is available at njtransfer.org.
