    As you register for courses and plan your schedule, carefully consider the sequence in which you take courses. Good planning will enhance your educational experience. Use the following study plan as a guide.

    This two-year plan of study lays out a sequence of courses that is recommended for you to complete the New Media Technology A.A.S. degree in two years. You may not be able to follow this sequence exactly. That is why you should always consult with your New Media Technology faculty or staff advisor before registering for any and every term. He or she can help you decide which course to substitute when recommended courses are not available, or are not offered at a time when you can take them. Your faculty or staff advisor will also help you choose elective courses that best serve your educational and career goals.

    Some students may take more than two years to complete this curriculum, and some students may take more than the required 60 credits.
