More Media Than Ever
Screens saturate our environment, from stadiums to gas pumps. People are needed to craft that audio and video—and that could be you.

The Television-Radio degree (TVR) offers courses in video production (studio and field) and post-production; audio, screenwriting, audience research, programming development and producing; and critical analysis of the economics, regulation, and content of popular media. You'll learn to work in fast-paced creative and technical environments with diverse teams, to pitch ideas and analyze programming, and to develop a conceptual framework that will enable you to become a principled decision-maker in a fast-changing media industry.

Students have the opportunity to develop their own "Area of Study" including Multi-Camera TV Studio Production, Single Camera Narrative Production, Non-Fiction/Documentary Production, Sports Production, On-Camera Performance, Scriptwriting, Producing, Directing. Social Media, Graphics and Animation, and International Communications, or you can design your own! We also offer minors in Animation, Audio Production, Communication Management and DesignIntegrated Marketing Communications, International Communications, JournalismLive Event Design & Management and Still Photography.

Excellent Teaching + Amazing Experiences = Great Careers

You're taught in small classes by professors who excel at teaching and who remain active in their areas of producing, consulting, writing, and scholarship. To put your learning into action in a professional setting, you will be encouraged to become actively involved in one of the Park School's award-winning student media outlets from the moment you arrive on campus.

Because of the experience that students get both on campus and in their internships, they are able to land great jobs right after graduation. Our alumni hold positions at the very top of the industry:
