Small class size
At TSTC, our Media Communications & Information Technology classes have no more than 20 students per class to ensure instructors have plenty of time one-on-one time with each student.
Compared to other colleges, TSTC students spend a lot less time in the classroom and more time in work settings, utilizing the tools they will use in their profession. Students spend approximately 27 to 30 hours a week in hands-on instruction, compared to other colleges, where students spend just 15 to 20 hours a week. It’s just one of the many ways TSTC ensures you get the strong training you need to succeed in your Media Communications & Information Technology career.
TSTC’s strong programs match industry needs, making it easier for graduates to obtain jobs when the time comes to move out into the workforce.
