Having a qualification majoring in both TV reporting and production gives our graduates a clear perspective of an intertwined industry. The Television Reporting and Production Program will not only instil essential skills but will also show you how to get started in television.
As a television reporter you will have an exciting job reporting local or national news. You may be covering a political convention one day, interviewing a celebrity the next, and reporting on breaking news after that.
As a television producer you may be involved in everything from coming up with ideas for programs to hiring the stars and supervising shooting. You will have a rewarding and creative job that lets you see the results of your work.
The authors of the program are award-winning television journalists and senior producers (MTV to Hollywood) who will provide you with insider advice on what you need to do in order to break into this competitive industry.
