Why Broadcast Media Production?
The incredible surge of Internet-based media through computers, mobile phones and personal media devices is creating an explosive demand for graduates with solid knowledge of digital broadcast media. Traditional news, sports and entertainment broadcasting outlets continue to demand top quality candidates.
Why Broadcast Media Production at Champlain?
Champlain's Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Media Production program gives students extensive grounding in producing and directing digital media and single-camera productions, resulting in a proficiency with nonlinear video editing, lighting and state-of-the-art cameras.
Our program offers a wide array of video, audio and writing courses, all in a small classroom environment. Students take on client projects beginning in their sophomore year, culminating in a semester-long individual client project during their senior year.
Burlington offers great internship and employment opportunities for students choosing this major, both during and after college.
