Communication provides training in communication skills for effective communication in interpersonal, business and professional settings. The university parallel program in Communication is designed for individuals who intend to complete the first two years of a baccalaureate degree program at Cleveland State and then transfer to a four-year college or university to complete the bachelor’s degree program in Communication. The curriculum includes general education and other selected courses typically required in a baccalaureate degree program in Communication.

This program was designed as a Tennessee Transfer Path to UT/TBR four-year universities in compliance with the Complete College Tennessee Act of 2010.  Programs with this designation are intended to provide a seamless transfer between all schools in the Tennessee Board of Regents or University of Tennessee systems. Therefore, students completing this program should expect a seamless transfer to any public university in Tennessee.  The program may also transfer to private colleges.
