The electronic media major will prepare students for entry-level positions in radio, television, cable, and corporate video. The program emphasizes the necessary skills for work in both the commercial and non-commercial broadcast areas, as well as corporate uses of the electronic media.
The Television Center is both a teaching facility and a professional video production center, enabling students to learn in a working studio while gaining professional experience. The equipment used by students applies the same logic and is similar to technologies used in the television and video production industries. Students have complete access to the studio, field equipment and editing systems by virtue of being registered in one of the many television courses offered each semester. Specific training is provided in studio directing and in the use of an on-line integrated editing system, a computerized electronic paint system used for creating and manipulating graphics and a non-linear, Avid composer editing system.
