sounds and new media
We turn to
the broadcast media for information, insight and entertainment.
In a time of crisis, television and the internet become our national
gathering place, as they did on 9/11/01. In normal times, broadcast
and new media communications can make us laugh, cause us to become
sentimental or inspire us to get involved in our communities.
Broadcast and New Media has a strong technological emphasis that
drives radio, television, cable, internet, satellite delivery and
Elon's School of Communications emphasizes visual storytelling.
That can happen in front of the microphone and camera as students
serve in news, sports and performance roles, and it can happen behind
the scenes in production, programming and management roles.
Broadcast and New Media students are prepared for fulfilling careers
in roles such as producers, directors, anchors, videographers, web
editors and myriad professions in the broad categories of broadcasting,
cable, satellite, electronic and wireless communications.
