Program Code: AAA.15340

The Delta College Electronic Media/Broadcasting program provides students with a broad range of traditional classroom and laboratory learning opportunities as well as hands on experience. The EMB curriculum is designed to provide well balanced instruction in the fields of broadcasting and multimedia production. Beginning with an exploration of the history of radio and television, students then study audio and video production, through which students will gain hands on experience in laboratory and real time operating conditions. The EMB program then concentrates on the growing and ever-changing fields of digital media productions and their practical applications. Students will utilize television production studios and computer labs to produce individual and group productions. The EMB program also offers students a chance to acquire professional experience while in school through internships with commercial radio and TV stations as well as practicum credit through WDCQ-TV/WDCP-TV and WUCX-FM, Delta College's Quality Public Television and Radio stations. Successful completion of the Electronic Media/Broadcasting program will provide students with the fundamental information and experience necessary for entry level positions in communication and information industries. The EMB degree will also provide a strong foundation for a student's further pursuit of a related undergraduate degree. Discussion regarding the best order for you to schedule the courses should be made with a Delta Electronic Media Broadcasting counselor. Check course descriptions for prerequisites. You must complete all required courses in this program.
