Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Broadcasting
Students interested in a career in television, radio or broadcast news should consider the Broadcasting major. Broadcasting students learn the ins and outs of video and audio production, performing for the camera, announcing, and writing for broadcast. Evangel’s broadcast program features opportunities to participate in cable programming, Web news and TV reporting. Whether you are interesting in being on camera, behind the microphone or behind the scenes, broadcasting is an exciting area of study.
The Broadcasting program at Evangel is balanced between the technical aspects of production and the need to have talented people on the air. Students will learn how to use a camera, edit video, write stories and commercials, create graphics, and produce studio and field programming.
All majors in the Communication Department learn speech, mass media, interpersonal communication, media writing and the basics of electronic media production. From there, students concentrate further into their majors. In Broadcasting, this includes audio and video production methods, film or documentary production, writing for broadcast, performing on camera and microphone, video editing, broadcast journalism and Web design. The Broadcasting major takes radio and TV workshops with plenty of hands-on training and participation. Broadcast internships are also available.
