The broadcast sequence has historically been a popular option for communication majors, with broadcast students benefiting from the presence of a local television station ( TV-24) that shares facilities with the university within Self Hall. Students gain practical experience working at the campus radio station ( 92 WLJS) or with the university's Television Services department. Professor Jerry Chandler advises and teaches many of the courses offered to complete this sequence.
