Communication Magnet
  • The Communications/Broadcast Arts Program focuses on the many methods employed in the communication of ideas including text, graphics, audio and video. Students enjoy the use of a professional on-campus television studio, state of the art recording studios, remote cameras, nonlinear video editing, digital video and still cameras, and a comprehensive computer graphics and web design lab to complete academic and extracurricular projects. Students interested in television and radio production, newspaper journalism, digital media and web design, computer graphics, advertising, or public relations will find this program an excellent choice.
