Introduction 

The Broadcast specialization in the Digital Journalism major helps build professional skills and ethical awareness in broadcast reporting and video production. Courses are offered in basic and advanced news writing, studio and field production, and news producing and directing. Rigorous and demanding, these courses are designed to provide hands-on training in on-air and behind-the-scenes operations, which are required to enjoy successful careers in a highly competitive industry.

Opportunities 

In today’s environment of converging media, successful journalists need the necessary skills and concepts to tell meaningful stories for a variety of outlets. A specialization in writing and reporting (print media) or broadcasting is required. At Central, broadcast students have excellent opportunities for internships at televisions stations in Yakima, Spokane and Seattle and for networking through a number of student organizations including the National Association of Broadcasters and the Radio and Television News Directors Association.

Why this program 

Central NewsWatch, CWU's student-run television newscast, offers students opportunities to gather, write, and report news stories for broadcast. In 2015, Central's student radio station The ‘Burg 88.1 was named Best College Radio Station in the U.S. by the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System.
