Program Description

Broadcasting and Multimedia Journalism is a two-year AAS degree program which is aimed at students invested in and wishing to enter the world of broadcasting. Coursework includes the production side for learning the technology used in day to day operations, and also essential skills such as news writing, copy editing, and using critical thinking to make informed decisions regarding content in the field of journalism. Other courses in the program introduce the student to concepts in broadcast management and on-air production. Students will be involved in developing content for both our on-campus streaming radio station, Comet Radio, and our internet television station, WITv, both located within our extensive lab area. Other skills will be put to practice in a real life newsroom also incorporated into our facility. This program allows the student to learn the skills necessary to obtain entry level employment in the Television, Radio and Internet Broadcasting industry.
