Beginning Fall 2022, the B.A. in Broadcasting with concentrations in broadcast production or broadcast reporting replaces the B.A. in Broadcast Production and Media Management. 

The broadcast production and media management major is one part strong academics, one part insight and one part hands-on experience. In this program, internships are a must, and at Point Park, internship and career opportunities are right at your doorstep. Within just a few blocks of our Downtown campus, students have easy access to Pittsburgh's employers.

You can put your classroom learning to work by joining the staff of the award-winning, student-operated radio station, WPPJ (AM-670).

Media production majors can produce shows and other content for U-View, Point Park's student broadcasting network.

And we encourage you to join the Point Park student chapter of the Broadcast Education Association (BEA), a professional group that connects you with other students, local broadcast media, professional groups and reputable local broadcasters.
