A Message From the Dean
At the College of Communication and Information Sciences our aim is to put you on a fast track to a successful career. We are committed to the University's "Finish in Four" goal and its "Discover your Passion" philosophy. Our college's peer-to-peer mentoring program, conducted by your fellow students, gives you the benefit of their experience, particularly when you are just getting started here in Phifer Hall. Check it out; it's a great way to start.
-Dr. Loy Singleton, Dean
We want to help you discover, solidify, and excel in a major that is just right for you. Our aim is to help you answer these questions:
- What jobs do our majors go into?
- What classes will be of the most interest to you?
- What clubs does the college offer to help me advance my career goals?
- Which teachers/advisors can help by talking to me about my career goals?
- What media experiences can I get involved in to enhance my resume?
- `What alumni can mentor me in my career choice?
These and more questions can be answered by the Ask ASSCA program, a peer to peer mentoring program sponsored by our CCIS leadership group-The Alabama Student Society for Communication Arts.
ASSCA Mentors come from each of the academic departments of the College. Please feel free to contact any of us with questions you may have.
