What will I learn?

Effective storytelling brings ideas and issues to life in inventive ways. The RTA School of Media is an international leader in this field, and Media Production explores television and video, radio and sound, digital media, screenwriting, media business and critical media theory. You’ll combine academic study with hands-on opportunities in state-of-the-art facilities, and further develop skills by hosting a show on RUtv or the SpiritLive radio station, establishing industry contacts through the RTA Upfront showcase or participating in a two-week RTA in LA program with UCLA.

After Graduation

Establish a strong foundation in the art, craft and business of media production to contribute to society, in broadcasting, on-air hosting, producing, screenwriting; media management; digital media sales; or screenwriting, producing, directing, editing, and talent casting. You may work as a line producer, agent, broadcast executive, copywriter or development executive. Or, pursue graduate studies in media entrepreneurship, screenwriting or entertainment law.

This is a Grades-Only program. Students are evaluated on the basis of academic achievement/grades only. Additional non-academic requirements are not required for admission consideration.
