The electronic media and broadcasting program fully embraces the department’s academic-and-applied mantra by developing our students’ skills as electronic storytellers. Students will build their stories upon the theoretical and aesthetic foundations that define effective media, learning to write and create media from radio to corporate video to documentaries to live television to digital cinema and more. Successful students will graduate with the conceptual proficiencies and practical skills to build a body of work, showcasing individual achievement in preparation for roles in creating informative and entertainment programming.
Students majoring in electronic media and broadcasting must complete 55-61 credit hours of study as listed below, including “ CMST 101 Public Speaking - OC (3 credits) ” or “ CMST 110 Introduction to Communication Studies - OC (3 credits) ” for the oral communication requirement of the general education program, and “ EMB 100 Media Literacy - AH (3 credits) ” for a culture and creativity requirement of the general education program. It is the policy of the Communication Department that the courses offered by the department (CMST, COM, EMB, HCOM, JOU, MIN, POP, PRE courses) cannot be double counted toward the majors and minors in the department unless the required course is the only option.
Special graduation requirements: All majors and minors must earn a letter grade of C- or better and a 2.0 GPA in their major or minor courses.
