The Media Studies Department provides hands-on opportunities in mass/mediated communication. These practicum opportunities include Dixie Sun News, a student-produced newspaper, website and TV broadcast; 91.3, a broadcast radio station; the Community Education Channel, a local television station and international streaming service; and Insight Communications, a marketing, advertising, and public relations agency. By participating in these practical experiences, students in the Media Studies program graduate with, not only a bachelor’s degree, but also a portfolio of work that demonstrates their ability to be successful in media employment. Students can begin participating as early as their freshman year, oftentimes with no prior experience. Scholarships are also available for some students who participate in these experiences.
