Graduates will possess the skills necessary to become employed upon graduation. The program focuses on both on-camera broadcast delivery skills and the behind-the-scenes technical aspects. In this era of job consolidation, the ability to function as an “MMJ”, Multi Media Journalist is essential. Graduates must be able to work as a reporter, videographer and editor. Students will learn the building blocks of identifying a good story, writing, scripting and delivering in both the studio and the field.
Included in the program is extensive development of broadcast news writing, voice training, vocal delivery and on-camera presentation. Students are trained for both Television and Radio with 80% of the emphasis on Television.
A thorough understanding will be gained in the areas of camera operation, videography and digital video editing. Students are trained in the use of the latest professional level editing programs including Edius.
Daily, students gather, write and deliver news, sports and weather for both television and radio functioning as street reporters and news anchors. Performance is constantly monitored and assessed by broadcast professionals. Students spend 75% of each class working in the studios or field covering real stories, often shoulder-to-shoulder with local reporters. Twenty five percent of each class is devoted to lecture and personal critiques. Classes simulate a “real world” working environment and independence is stressed.
At the conclusion of this course students will produce a final tape or “demo reel” with which to demonstrate skills to prospective employers. The course concludes with an externship appropriate to student interest and ability.
