The Radio/TV/Film (formerly Broadcasting) unit at East Tennessee State University prepares students for careers in the radio, television and film industry, and provides a foundation for future growth and career development in research, programming, writing, directing, producing, managing and ownership of the nation’s electronic and entertainment media.


With a degree in Media + Communication, you gain real-world experience using the same software and equipment the pros use.

In addition to the cultivation of artistic and practical skills, the program emphasizes history, law and ethics of electronic media and a broad knowledge of the social, economic, and cultural problems of the society it serves. Students receive hands-on experience by working in the department's student-operated radio and television stations, laboratories, and approved internships.
