Court Reporting

The court reporting curriculum prepares students for a variety of positions in the field of court reporting. These include judicial (city, state and federal court systems), as well as nonjudicial settings, such as freelance reporting for legal depositions, meetings and conventions. Students are prepared in computer-compatible machine shorthand at 225 words per minute and transcribe regularly on professional computer-aided transcription systems. Upon graduation, they are expected to be computer proficient. This program includes an internship, which is served in both the judicial system and freelance agencies.

The Office Technology, Information Technology and Hospitality Management department offers a Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree in Office Technology with concentrations in Court Reporting/Closed Captioning.
