Just a moment . . . Students are encouraged to develop special competencies in their areas of interest. For example, they may take advanced courses in graphic design, video production, professional writing, advertising or public relations. In some courses, students gain industry experience by working with real-world clients.
Additional opportunities to build student portfolios include the publication of The Observer, the student-run newspaper, and the operation of the student-run radio station, Radioactive 1620. You’ll take part in related cooperative education experiences with area businesses to gain work experience. For example, students have worked to produce a televised political talk show, commercial radio broadcasts, and local newspapers and magazines.
