EDWARDSVILLE – It’s time to register for fall classes. If you are interested in a degree in communication, Lewis and Clark Community College (LCCC) has partnered with Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville (SIUE) to create an LC 2+2 ACS Program for college students.

This program is for students interested in starting their speech degree at LCCC and then transferring to SIUE to complete their bachelor’s degree in applied communication studies (ACS).

At LCCC, students will complete their general education courses such as basic math, English and sciences. In addition, students will complete entry-level ACS courses. The students will then transfer to SIUE to complete their final two years towards a bachelor’s degree in applied communication studies.

“This program is a seamless transition for students,” said Elizabeth Grant, Speech Coordinator at LCCC. “It helps them get a jumpstart on their degree and helps them avoid getting behind due to missed prerequisites. It is also very accommodating for non-traditional students.”

Starting at LCCC cuts overall costs of tuition by nearly one-third than students would pay if they completed their first two years at SIUE. And the program gives the students flexibility to peruse their career path of choice within communication.

“Students have the opportunity to choose their path with an ACS degree. This is not just a general communication program,” said Dr. Eric Duff Wrobbel, ACS Department Chair. “Students decide between public relations, organizational communication or interpersonal communication. That’s what makes this degree so unique.”

Not only is the LC 2+2 ACS Program less expensive, the curriculum is also already lined up for students. This ensures a bachelor’s degree in ACS upon completion.
