Through a mix of classroom theory and production experience, you'll study the essential media techniques and broadcast management skills to be an asset to real-world businesses and organizations. You'll produce videos and audio materials for business applications, such as training videos, product information spots, corporate presentations, online advertising campaigns and video press releases, and you'll learn the newest marketing techniques for direct-to-consumer media presentations. Working on projects with clients such as Shelburne Farms, American Red Cross and United Way, you'll learn by doing in our digital editing suites, video and computer labs, and audio studios, as well as on location.

We designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study, which means you can study in another country, even complete an internship abroad, and still graduate on time. You can choose to take your international study at our campus in Montreal, Canada, or in Dublin, Ireland, or through one of our Global Partner or third-party programs.
