Change IS Coming to the Mass Comm Program

SPC Programs & Events

By Malique Ferrette 

Joseph Leopold, Dean of Communications

For many students here at SPC, namely those interested in pursuing any form of a communications degree, the process of registering for required classes is less than convenient. However, this past Tuesday, Joseph Leopold, the Dean of Communications at the college assured students that change is coming. Students expressed their frustrations with the lack of required course availability and the disbursement of classes across campuses. Emphasis was also placed on creating the option for online classes for those courses already available.

Very engaging and open to both curious inquiry and request, the Dean said that though the Spring schedule has already been set, it’s not impossible to implement some of the changes being requested by the students. Yet still, of everything discussed, the changes most likely to come have to do with the availability of online class options for courses specific to mass communications and the addition of more in-class options.
