Digital technology and changes in governmental regulation of commercial radio have launched a revolution in the U.S. broadcasting industry. Today's broadcast professionals rely on computer skills to create programming, record and edit audio, and gather and report news. Students work on-air at WGFR, the College's FM radio station. Through course work, internships, and co-curricular activities, students develop broadcast writing and production skills, as well as a theoretical understanding of the mass media and broadcast programming philosophies. Graduates seek entry-level employment at radio stations. Students may transfer credits into a comparable two-year degree program. Recommended high school preparation: Speech, computer and English writing-related courses.
