The Radio-Television-Broadcasting / Media Convergence and Production Option degree prepares students to enter the world of radio and television broadcasting and other related media industries with a particular emphasis on converging media. Students receive “hands-on” experience and focus on the skills required to compete in a new media environment where traditional media are converging with new media technology. Technical courses are balanced with theory-based courses so students can experience a critical approach to the industry. Students work with current industry-standard software programs and state of the art equipment. By working closely with a faculty advisor, students can choose electives to strengthen or broaden their own preparation for employment.
