The Telecommunication specialization teaches students the art and craft of television, radio, and production.


Specialization Description 

Students taking classes in Telecommunication and Film experience a wide variety of coursework including television direction, radio production, writing, and broadcast management. The proliferation of telecommunication outlets has resulted in job opportunities that did exist two decades ago. Students take part in hands-on learning including a practicum in television news.
