Students in the broadcast and digital journalism program learn writing, information gathering and reporting, formatting, editing, anchoring, and producing for both traditional and digital media platforms. Students also study critical issues (including ethical dilemmas) faced in today’s complex communications environment. “Hands-on” experience is emphasized in the broadcast and digital journalism curriculum. Newscast production takes place in our state-of-the-art combined newsroom and HD studio. The newsroom space includes 27 workstations equipped with ENPS (a widely used news production system), Adobe Premiere Pro for video editing and Ross Xpression for graphic creation. The studio portion features fully robotic cameras, a video wall, two large screen monitors, an anchor desk and interview area. The adjacent control room is fully automated with Ross Overdrive technology. Student journalists are also able to report live from the scene of news stories using Dejero portable equipment. Majors are encouraged to take advantage of University-sponsored internships at broadcast stations (both local and network) across the country.
