Program overview

You’ll take Intro to Radio to learn about career options in the professional radio world. You’ll also take Voice and Articulation to work on your diction, enunciation, and ability to communicate your thoughts effectively to your audience. In Music Radio Broadcasting, you’ll develop your on-air skills as a radio host and see the behind-the-scenes activities of a radio station. You’ll apply your knowledge in Radio Production I by completing hands-on projects, which give you opportunities not only to use music and sound effects but also to master audio-production techniques such as recording, editing, and mixing. The highlight for Radio majors is the Practicum, which you might take as early as the first semester of your junior year. In this course, you’ll work at our award-winning station, WCRX-FM, to gain hands-on experience working in broadcast media. You’ll learn to do the jobs of show hosts, producers, music curators, sportscasters, newscasters, production directors, and online content producers. As you focus on your area of interest in Radio, you may take electives like sportscasting, voiceover, audio theatre, radio storytelling, and club-DJ mixing. Because we’re located in a major media market, many of our seniors and juniors intern at local radio stations.
