The Radio & Television degree program prepares students to enter the television and radio broadcast industry. Students will learn to write, produce, and package programs for the broadcast and video production community. To enhance the learning process, students will also complete internships at local broadcast and/or video production facilities. Upon successful completion of the degree program, students may gain employment as announcers, producers, directors, writers, board operators, as well as in other non-broadcast occupations, in audio and video production.

Students who elect to complete a certificate program learn specialized broadcast skills in a shorter period of time. Coursework completed in the certificate program may be applied to one of the options in the Associate of Applied Science Degree program.

Students may complete deficiencies concurrently with the beginning courses in the program. Students must arrange with advisors to remedy deficiencies in program requirements.
