The broadcast media production curricula provide training for careers in radio production, television production, and related fields in digital media, such as "e-radio" production and digital video editing. Courses are designed to benefit those seeking new careers and the upgrading of current skills, as well as recent high school graduates exploring career opportunities in the electronic media.
There are two programs leading to the AAS in broadcast media production. Students in either the radio or the television AAS track study broad industry-wide topics, including an introduction to broadcasting, audio production techniques, broadcast journalism, broadcast management, and basic television production. Having acquired this core knowledge, degree-seeking students move on to advanced hands-on, experience-based classes in either radio or television production. This advanced study helps students develop technical skill, aesthetic values, and professional attitudes that will be of value in commercial, industrial, and educational media production and distribution. A transferable general education component rounds out the two AAS programs.
Students interested in concentrated career preparation without the general education component may choose certificate curricula in broadcast journalism, digital multimedia production (which provides technical skills training in digital videography and video editing and digital audio production), radio production, or television production.
