Three sound production studios, a 1200-square-foot television studio, electronic field production equipment, digital filmmaking, and linear and non-linear editing suites provide stateof- the-art facilities to create sophisticated programs. Coupled with the general education courses required for the degree, graduates can enter the industry immediately or continue their studies at the university level.
