Have you ever thought about your name rolling onto the screen in the credits at the end of a television program? In addition to the talent in front of the camera, that list often includes ENG camera operators, set designers, crane operators, production technicians, and editors – the folks behind the camera, in the studio, and in the control room.
Radio continues to evolve at a breakneck pace and there's ongoing demand for creative and passionate announcers, writers, and audio producers. This concentration focuses on advanced fundamental skills for those hoping to pursue careers on-air, in radio production, commercial creative writing, and programming management. It's composed of studies in advanced on-air techniques, digital audio production, and internal station operations as well as contemporary radio industry and technology developments.
Do you like talking to people? Are you curious about what is going on in the world and like the idea of telling people about events both near and far? Broadcast Journalism could be the area of specialization for you. With a focus on writing, reporting, and reading the news for both radio and television, you are active in the community – interviewing people, recording the sound and shooting the visuals, as well as writing and presenting the stories on the air. In your senior project you create a documentary about social issues and engage the community to develop real life stories.
Do you want to work in the fast-paced world of radio and television? Do you see yourself on the street, camera on your shoulder, capturing the latest event? On the air, introducing the latest hit, or preparing to interview one of the latest newsmakers? This program prepares you for a career both behind the equipment and in the public eye (or ear).
This exploratory program prepares you for further study in creative and media arts by helping you identify your interests, passion, and strengths. You explore a wide range of applied arts disciplines – photography, graphic design, digital animation, printing, video, and audio production.
