New Digital Literacy Program at West Shore Community College Puts Students Ahead

A brand new program at West Shore Community College in Mason County is helping students keep up with changes in the workforce.

The digital literacy program is keeping students on the cutting edge of technology and communication.

This new program will allow students to become flexible, adaptive and confident in today’s workforce.

For some students it could even open up opportunities on the road to a degree at the University of Michigan.

“It’s our way of insuring that higher education for students is absolutely relevant to twenty first century needs,” John Wolff, humanities professor.

The brand new digital literacy program gives West shore Community College students a broad liberal arts foundation.

“This is a wonderful opportunity because anyone that’s gone into the Bachelor of Science and Information program has come out and found a job in three to four months in the field. With an average salary of $70,000 a year for all graduates,” says Wolff.

If your goals are based around communication arts, information science, design, marketing or social change this program fits your needs and shows you that even a University of Michigan degree isn’t out of reach.

“All they require are 54 college credits with a grade of c or better and three pre requisite courses,” says Wolff.

“Some students might not have the chance to go to a bigger university like University of Michigan so this is a great way to sort of start and slowly go into that,” Karla Ortega, student.
