Cohort Programs


Prepare for a future in Communication Studies at Pellissippi State!


The Communications Studies Cohort is for incoming freshman pursuing a communication-related field including, but not limited to journalism, mass communication, interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, argumentation and debate, speech writing and performance.

Students that are enrolled in the Communication Studies Cohort will enter Pellissippi State together and finish together, as one dynamic group. Students chosen to be part of the cohort will have demonstrated the maturity and self-motivation to work well in teams and manage their time effectively.

The course of study is two years, including summer, between the freshman and sophomore years (five semesters); classes meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Upon successful completion of the program, the student will earn an Associate of Science degree, and will be eligible to transfer to any state university as a junior. Active assistance will be provided in establishing useful relationships with four-year institutions.
