The Department of Television and Radio seeks to cultivate in its students a deep understanding of electronic media and a proficiency in their use. Research development and applied electronic media production are key elements of the department's programs.
The department offers a bachelor of arts degree in television and radio, a bachelor of science degree in broadcast journalism, and minors in television and radio for film majors and for theater majors. We offer our students departmental scholarships, industry-sponsored internships, and teaching assistant and research credits. Our association with the College television club and the radio station gives our students the opportunity for involvement with the College community and exposure to state-of-the-art media and digital technology in the College's recording and broadcasting facilities.
Students' television production work is shown on CUNY-TV-Channel 75 in Manhattan-and on B-CAT-Brooklyn's community access channel. Radio production work is webcast internationally on www.brooklyncollegeradio.org, and locally over WBCR. In addition, student work appears on select National Public Radio programs. Each summer broadcast journalism students produce their own local news broadcast for B-CAT.
Alumni of the department find jobs in a wide variety of
communication professions, including advertising, public relations, print and electronic journalism, corporate communications, sales, and education, as well as in television and radio facilities. Many of our graduates are in leadership positions in these fields, and some return to us as adjunct instructors and curriculum development advisers. Many of our students seek advanced degrees to further their career goals. Students who wish to pursue graduate studies may apply to the master's programs offered by this department.
The department is located on the 3rd floor of Whitehead Hall (click here for a map of the college, and directions to the college).
