Atlantic Cape Community College will begin offering a new degree in "new media studies" starting in September.

The new program will give students experience in web and graphic design, public relations, writing, television and radio production.

Otto Hernandez, Associate Dean of Technology Studies, said they looked at U.S. Department of Labor job projections and talked with area media outlets to determine if there would be a need for graduates with new media skills.

A report on the new program said there are 149 radio stations, 15 television stations and 66 newspapers in New Jersey alone, and all also have a presence on the web. The Department of Labor projects an 11 percent increase in demand for media jobs by 2018.

Hernandez said the program is designed to give students skills that can take them directly into a job on graduation.

"Not every student wants to transfer to get a four-year degree," he said.
