Whether you want to be behind a microphone or in front of a camera, we provide the theoretical and practical hands-on experiences that will allow you to pursue your interests.  Internships in media careers nationwide will complement your study in specializations in digital media arts and animation, electronic journalism, media industries, radio/audio production, electronic sports media, and television/video production.  Graduates of the Department of Radio, Television, and Digital Media are leaders who set the tone for media across numerous platforms. 

Students in the Department of Radio, Television, and Digital Media combine the historical and critical knowledge with hands-on practice to become cutting edge media producers and scholars. Our world-class production and research faculty guide students not only in the use of the latest technologies, but also in developing an understanding of the social, political and economic contexts of the media they produce and analyze.
