"How do I get the experience that's required in order to get a job?"
At Cedarville you will be recording audio, shooting video and preparing streaming media as class projects. There are lots of other opportunities to add to your experience outside the classroom, as well.
We have an online station - Resound Radio - that is entirely student staffed, providing practical experience in production, programming, sales, promotion and management.
Filmgate is a student organization that offers opportunities to work on productions outside of class. Filmgate also strives to work with clients to provide a environment that realistically simulates the media industry pipeline.
All that production experience helps build your demo reel, but you also get courses to help you better understand how the media work and to think about your work in the media as a calling. The course work you will take provides a balance between hands-on work and courses in advanced topics such as media research, legal and ethical issues and how Christians approach working in the media.
