Communication courses give a practical foundation in basic communication skills necessary for admittance to a four-year college or university major program in journalism or mass communications. A variety of courses is offered, including radio and television reporting, mass communications, reporting, editing, feature and editorial writing, photography, public relations, and advertising. The program also includes the active production of school publications, including an online newspaper. As electives for non-communication majors, these courses serve as outlets for creative talent and school service and enable students to become more discerning consumers of the mass media. 

Photography courses at Midland College offer experiences for students from introductory through advanced levels. Photography credit may be applied to majors in art or communication or may be chosen as electives. Many of our photographers are simply enthusiasts who pursue the medium for personal pleasure. All four black and white courses include darkroom time. Each student will have the opportunity to produce photographs from subjects they shoot and to submit images for publication in our newspaper, magazines, and student shows. Photography courses are offered through either the Communication Department or the Art Department. 

Photography courses offered include the following:

The courses listed in the program below are suggested for students who intend to major in Communications at a university. Students should also consult the catalog of the university that they plan to attend and determine that institution’s transfer requirements. 

The sequence of courses should be followed when possible.
