Broadcasting and Multimedia/Technical (AAS)

Source: MCC 2015-16 Catalog
The Broadcasting and Multimedia/Technical curriculum is designed to prepare students for entry into the production side of television, radio, and related careers in news media. Core requirement classes strive to provide real world experience within the college’s radio and television stations. As broadcasting transitions to digital delivery and expands to web and other new media methods of reaching listeners and viewers, this curriculum requires students to broaden their experiences to include networking, web design and graphic design. This program is not designed to transfer to a four-year institution. Any student wishing to transfer to a four-year college is urged to consult with a counselor.
