Communication: Broadcasting

Broadcasting Students

Broadcasting is the delivery of audio and video program content via radio and television. This definition is just the tip of the iceberg of how news and entertainment transmission takes place today. In our Broadcasting concentration, we focus on the “how” of news and entertainment – how video and audio images are captured, edited and transmitted, and how effective and meaningful ones are written and created in the first place. Broadcasting training is applicable from documentaries to television sitcoms, from podcasting to All Things Considered. It is CBS and Netflix, Anderson Cooper and Big Bang Theory.
