Broadcasting I & II (10/10 credits)
Broadcasting I and II focuses on creating programs for Radio and Television. The student will learn the creative and technical aspects of producing complete Broadcast Projects. Journalistic reporting is stressed and the dynamics of effective communication is reinforced through electronic news gathering and Internet research.
Through High Tech's own Radio Station, WHIT, the student will have the opportunity to develop and produce his/her own radio programs. A new state-of-the art Digital Radio Station with enhanced web streaming capabilities has been constructed in the School's Cafeteria. The new WHIT Web Page will allow for easier access with more sophisticated educational resources. This course will set the foundation for a career in Communications and Journalism.
Broadcasting II students will be involved in Outreach and Internship Programs. Real experiences with local radio and cable television stations have been established. The new show, The Exchange allows students to voice their opinions through a discussion panel format. These real-life broadcasting experiences are an intricate component of the two year program.
