Fall 2022: The School of Communication is introducing a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcasting with concentrations in broadcast reporting or broadcast production. This program replaces the B.A. in Broadcast Production and Media Management. 

This combined broadcasting major is one part strong academics, one part insight and one part hands-on experience. You'll get started within our classes and then move outside into the professional world.

As a broadcasting major, you're in for some intense classes in writing, editing, multimedia, video production, newsgathering and reporting, among other electives to further your program of study.

Beginning day one, you have access to our state-of-the art facilities and the opportunity to join any of the student-run media outlets/organizations
