Associate of Arts in Media Arts and Production

Do you have a passion for radio, television, or media arts? Is a competitive edge important to you? Are you a current Specs@LTU student or a graduate of the Specs Howard School of Media Arts?

If you answered yes to all three questions, then an Associate of Arts in Media Arts and Production from Lawrence Tech might be the program for you. Not only will you broaden your knowledge and expand your career options, this degree can be used as a steppingstone toward LTU’s Bachelor of Arts in Media Communication.

Based on a previous partnership between Lawrence Tech and the Specs Howard School of Media Arts, the practical knowledge you acquire through the completion of the Specs@LTU program can be combined with LTU’s core liberal arts curriculum plus several media communication courses to earn your associate degree–credits that can also be transferred to LTU’s Bachelor of Arts in Media Communication.

After successfully completing either the Broadcast Media Arts or the Digital Media Arts program through Specs@LTU, you are eligible to transfer 24 credits toward the 61 credit hours required for the AAMAP degree. This program is offered exclusively to Specs@LTU students and former Specs Howard students and is not open for general admission.
