Our Broadcasting degree program is the only one of its kind in Florida. With the focus on the combination of theoretical and practical experience for our students. We ensure that our students are well trained in both the relevant concepts of production and programming and provide them with the opportunities to apply these concepts in practical application.
For most people who are not familiarized with the industry, broadcasting is viewed through the narrow prism of someone presenting content on radio or television. Nevertheless, that is merely a small part of what the broadcasting discipline entails. Indeed, so much more has to be mastered to facilitate on-air performance. In our broadcasting program our students are taught every facet of broadcasting, except how to repair the equipment.
Our students are exposed to on-air performance, radio and television production, programming and operations. They are trained in how to:
- Produce Programs
- Present Programs
- How to gather, write and present news
- How to develop, produce and present talk shows
- How to execute a-rated commercial
- How to do commentaries
- How to write radio and televisions scripts
- How to produce and direct
- How to sell and market ideas/products
- How to edit for audio and video
Our Broadcasting school in Florida, each student gets the opportunity to learn in an internship environment. Our students are sent to some of the leading radio, televisions, and production houses throughout South Florida for a one-term (11-week-90 hour internship) attachment, where they get a chance to interact with professionals within the real world settings. Some of our interns have been employed by their internship site as soon as their attachments were complete.
While our program is described as Broadcasting major we actually teach students how to communicate effectively. In practice, it’s about developing the ability to maximize communication tools, with a strong broadcasting foundation. Our students acquire skill-sets that make them marketable not only in radio and television settings, but in any discipline they choose to utilize their communication and broadcasting know-how. Among other things, they can work as:
- News reporters, news writers, producers, directors
- Marketing and Advertising managers
- Corporate Communicators
- Public Relations Specialists
- Media Specialists
- Voice-over presenters
- Audio editors, videographers, camera operators, master control operators
- Scripts writers, Sportscasters, communication planners
