Video Production Complex

The Scripps Howard Video Production Complex prepares students for careers in broadcast and institutional video production through experience in their course work, student productions, and contracted production projects. The facility is solely designed for student use and students are encouraged to take their abilities, motivation, and desire as far as they can.

RTV courses using the facility include a required introductory media production course presenting students a variety of approaches to audio and video production. Students can also enroll in advanced courses in broadcast journalism, program studio production, field shooting and editing, and radio/television performance.
