West Windsor, N.J. – In a continuing expansion of academic programs for Mercer County’s high school seniors, ten new areas of study in arts and communication are now available through a partnership between Mercer County Community College (MCCC) and Mercer County Technical Schools (MCTS).
The new programs are: Advertising Design, Communication, Entertainment Tech: Theatre, Entertainment Tech: Musical Production, Fashion/Apparel Design, Fashion Merchandising, Game Design, New Media and Journalism, Photography and Visual Arts.
This latest expansion more than doubles the areas of study now available to high school seniors. The other programs include TV/Radio Production, Criminal Justice, Culinary, Theatre/Dance, Fire Science and Exercise Science.
The enrollment process begins when students are high school juniors. As they develop their schedules for their senior year, they can apply to participate in the Career Prep program, which typically includes four college classes – two in the fall and two in the spring. Then, as seniors they will complete their required high school classes in the morning and take transportation provided by the county to MCCC for afternoon classes.
