B.S. Mass Communications - Radio Broadcasting

The Radio Broadcasting concentration offers students an education in the on-air presence, management and operations of radio broadcasting and media.  It is closely integrated with Husson’s campus radio station WHSN 89.3-FM. The campus radio station provides students with opportunities to apply the skills and knowledge they have learned within the classroom through significant on-air time in the station each week, starting as early as the first semester. The radio-broadcasting curriculum prepares students for multiple roles within a radio station with courses in music and sports programming, commercial and show production, web presence, promotions, media sales, and station management.
