Television, Video and Sound Arts

The Broadcast Electronic Media Arts Department prepares students for university transfer and provides lifelong learners and degree holders the opportunity to upgrade workplace skills and prepare for career transition. Graduates either transfer to a university or seek employment in the media industry.

Courses and programs explore the design and creation of content for the electronic media with focus on writing, media analysis, storytelling, teamwork, leadership, production craft skills, and emerging technologies. Media literacy is emphasized throughout the curriculum. Classes are offered at Ocean Campus, at the Mission Campus Media Studies Center, on EATV-Ch27 & 75 and online.

All courses are credit and degree applicable and transfer to the CSU and/or UC systems. Some courses transfer as breadth requirements and/or core major requirements to colleges and universities such as San Francisco State University (9 courses), University of California Berkeley (3 courses), and San Francisco Art Institute (6 courses). Certificate programs are recommended for those seeking to acquire entry-level skills, or upgrade and retool skills, and for lifelong learners preparing for career transition.

Univision Job Posting-News Anchor

The above job posting shows the variety of skills a news anchor is expected to have.  An anchor, or anyone in a broadcast news room for that matter, is expected to have many skills besides their 'main' job.  The anchor needs to be an expert in Social Media, gather their own research, tell their stories through compelling writing and be able to edit their own packages!  If you have some of these skills, but not all, BEMA can help!
