Champlain Broadcast Media Production Graduates Are Ready

In addition to the extensive career-focused programs and support offered College-wide, each of Champlain's majors features learning opportunities and skills that help our students create highly marketable résumés.

Highlights include:

  • All members of the Broadcast Media Production faculty are professionals in their field, which is an essential factor in our students getting the most cutting-edge education.

  • In a variety of classes, Broadcast Media Production students get to work with real-life clients: businesses, nonprofits, and individuals. Students complete client projects on a professional level. Our students have had PSAs aired on television and promotional materials posted on websites.

  • Broadcast Media Production students typically take three or four internships over the course of their program, which gives them stellar credentials and recommendations.

  • Broadcast Media Production students have the opportunity to work on-air at the Champlain Wave, our web-radio station, and gain valuable skills in producing, writing, and hosting shows, and as editors, board operators, and social media managers.

  • In the Broadcast Media Production Capstone class, seniors continuously revise their résumés and cover letters and put a portfolio together to send to future employers. During class time, students practice interviews with professionals from the Burlington area. Many students attribute their high degree of success in their job searches after graduation to the preparation that took place during the Capstone class.
