Digital Media: TV/Film Production Concentration

In the TV/Film Production concentration, students take classes where they explore multiple modes of narrative and documentary storytelling. Beginning with the first semester on campus, students create video projects while learning about different formats, including digital streaming media and virtual/augmented reality.

Coursework and hands-on experience at Endicott and through internships will provide a strong foundation in the field, culminating in a visual thesis project that demonstrates how aesthetic theory informs applied professional practice. Career possibilities are numerous, not just within the broadcasting and video production industries, but also in a number of related fields where creative and technical skills are valued.

Students will gain hands-on experience in Endicott’s Digital Media Center, a full TV studio, control room, and post-production area located in the School of Communication.

Digital Media Center

"Students studying TV/Film Production at Endicott explore its many facets through coursework as well as through internship and extracurricular opportunities. What makes this program unique is the emphasis not only on developing creative storytelling but also mastering the technical skills to produce the story as well as understanding how to effectively share that story with an audience within a diverse industry."
Ellie Pye
Director, Digital Media Center
