Individualized attention and hands-on training using state of the art equipment, combined with a strong liberal arts foundation, position students to create meaningful, socially engaged media projects. Our award-winning faculty have years of professional experience in broadcast, film, radio, and new media; and guest lectures, field trips, film screenings, and in-depth workshops are just a few of the added advantages to the established coursework in this major. Students are encouraged to immerse themselves in the industry and take internships in the fields they are interested in and in years past, students have interned at stations such as MTV, NBC, CNN, PBS, Sirius Radio, and with shows like Rachael Ray and the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  They have also worked on independent films and interned at key film venues, such as the Tribeca Film Festival.
