Radio & Television

two students in TV studio
At Ambrose, we put YOU in the anchor chair.

As a Radio and Television major, you'll gain experience in all stages of radio and television production.

In your first year, students are encouraged to take radio and television production courses, which gives you hands-on training for operating audio and video equipment and reporting broadcast news. And what's great about studying at SAU is that we have our own KALA radio and SAUtv studios .

After graduation, they may choose to work at TV and radio stations, as on-air talent, producers, directors, photographers, and more. Students may also get jobs at corporate audio/visual production departments, training centers or creative agencies.

Course highlights include Radio and Television Production, Media and Society, Television Practicum, and Broadcast Technologies. See all Communications courses
