About Media Production
A major in Media Production prepares the student to enter into the challenging, futuristic, rapidly changing world of electronic media production. Students have the opportunity to work through the production process, apply theory to practical classroom exercises, and work in small classes, developing a close relationship with peers and faculty mentors.
The student uses state-of-the-art technology in the modern Burlingame Communication Center as they work on individual or team projects that mirror the professional world. Before students majoring in Media Production reach the senior year and are ready for internship opportunities, students have an opportunity to gain practical and leadership experience working with Orbit Media; WMCO, a Class A 1.32 KW FM radio station and Muskingum University Television, ‘Orbit TV,’ a television studio operating on the cable access channel in New Concord.
The mission of the Communication, Media, & Theatre Department is to offer quality academic programs designed to develop student understanding and skills in theatre, media, and communication theory, technology, and performance. Through development of ethical sensitivity, critical thinking, performance and production skills, the student will be challenged to lead a more vocationally productive, personally satisfying, and socially responsible life.
The vision of the Communication, Media, & Theatre Department continues to be aggressively striving to keep the department on the cutting edge of practice, theory, methods, and technology of communication in the twenty-first century.
