Associate in Science and Arts

Broadcasting and Multimedia/Performance

The Broadcasting and Multimedia/Performance curriculum is designed to prepare students for entry into related degree tracks at four-year colleges and universities. Traditionally, these programs provided classes and experience for those desiring on-camera or behind-the-mic jobs in broadcasting, but now radio and television seek employees with both performance and production skills. Therefore, classes in television and audio production are required and classes in graphic design, web design, and video editing are strongly recommended. Students will find a variety of on-air opportunities in sports reporting, weather delivery, news standup, and talk show hosting through MCC's own media outlets.
 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS CR. HRS
At the time of printing the MCC catalog, all Associate in Science and Arts degrees were being revised in keeping with a recent State of Michigan mandate. The intention of the mandate is to ensure more efficient transfer between Michigan post-secondary institutions.
