Why Study Broadcast and Cinematic Arts?

Electronic media surrounds us; on the radio, on television, on the internet, on our smart phones and devices, and other public spaces. Someone has to create and manage this media and that could be you. The School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts offers a flexible major or minor to allow you to explore several areas including media production, broadcast news, sports broadcasting, media leadership and entrepreneurship, film and media studies, media writing and media performance. You will learn media skills in the classroom that you can apply in hands-on practical experience in our co-curricular activities.

Broadcast and Cinematic Arts at CMU

Students seeking to major or minor in BCA should meet with a BCA academic advisor to select the best elective courses to meet their career goals. It is expected that each BCA major and minor will be involved every semester in one or more of the School’s co-curricular activities. These include WMHW-FM (Mountain 91.5 & 101.1 The Beat), Moore Hall Television (MHTV), News Central, Moore Media Records and CMU Film Society. These activities provide students with practical media experience that cannot be replicated in the classroom. Students are also encouraged to participate in BCA chapters of the National Broadcasting Society, and the Radio and Television Digital News Association.
