This sequence provides an understanding of the theories and practices of radio
and television news. Courses concentrate on news, but also cover announcing,
writing, producing and directing.
Broadcast journalism majors gain experience as reporters
and producers through internships with television networks such as
CNN in Atlanta and stations WIS TV, WLTX TV and WOLO TV in Columbia.
Broadcast journalism seniors are in the newsroom five days a week
producing a live, daily television newscast. The newscast
airs on a local cable channel and on the USC campus channel.
