Radio-TV Broadcasting (AAS.RTV)

Associate Degree in Applied Science

Radio-TV Broadcasting provides students with the skills necessary for positions of employment in local and regional radio and television stations. Students receive hands-on training with much of the same equipment found in today's broadcast industry. Upon completion of a Radio-TV degree, students will be able to write news, sports, commercials and promotional announcements for use on radio and television; to function as radio/television announcers; and to operate state-of-the-art digital audio systems, a non-linear digital video editing system and a radio control console. Students will also be proficient in the effective techniques of radio and television sales and will be able to operate an assortment of video production equipment. For those interested, training in sports play-by-play is also available. Experience is obtained on the college FM stereo radio station, through work in the non-broadcast television studio, by using television field equipment and through the use of audio and video digital editing systems. Internships at local radio and television stations are available. For those interested in transferring to Southern Illinois University at Carbondale or Eastern Illinois University, a specific curriculum can be designed.

For students who want to transfer:

A program can be designed for a student who wants to transfer to a four-year university with an emphasis in Radio and Television. If a student completes the program, the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) General Education Requirements are fulfilled. Classes in Radio-TV are accepted as an equivalent, general elective in the major, or general elective. Following completion, a student receives an associate in applied science degree with all general education requirements satisfied.
