The Visual Communications Associate of Applied Sciences Degree programs and the Web Design and Development Level 2 Certificate were recognized for the integration of Digital Media and Web Development and Administration skill standards.
For this recognition, Brookhaven College received a $5,000 and $1,000 award. Certificates and degrees from these programs can now include the TSSB seal, documenting that graduates have acquired the skills and knowledge deemed necessary by employers in their field.
