This major allows students to learn the skills necessary to write, produce and distribute media messages via television and film. There are many opportunities for hands-on learning with courses in multi-camera, field and post-production, both inside the studio and on location. Upper-level students participate in a video drama production capstone project, while television studio majors produce a season’s worth of news and talk/variety shows.
