B.S. Communications Technology - Video Production

Students in the Video Production concentration achieve learning objectives that range from broadcast operations to video production to digital film-making. Students acquire the knowledge and skills for video and audio acquisition and shooting, editing, directing, lighting, computer network operations, replay, graphics, compositing, animation and switching. They use industry standard software and hardware such as Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premier and After Effects, EVS, Sony, Grass Valley and Red.  The lessons learned in the classroom are transposed to real-world environments and projects that can involve film-making, documentaries, commercial production, TV broadcast, and sports production.  These events provide students with the opportunity to work with industry standard equipment, creating high-definition content.  Students also learn about the distribution of video content through broadcast, web streaming, film-making and live venues.
