Broadcast Media Services and EATV-Ch 27 & 75 internship programs provide students with exposure to workplace conduct and hands-on application of theory and skills. Faculty and staff ensure a connected experience between the classroom and internships. Both paid and unpaid internships are available. See the Internships link on this website and College and Industry Internships Online  for more information.

NOTE: A few factual errors/implications exist in the above video.

  1. Same day requests are Kryptonite. We require a five-working day notice for equipment requests in order to serve the college in the most effective way with our limited resources.
  2. Though we might "fly" during our busy delivery schedule, Superman may be unavailable to visit your classroom. Certain areas and types of equipment on Ocean Campus are handled by the Audiovisual Department in R305.
  3. Student reservation & check-out of equipment and our computer labs are limited to BEMA production students for their course-specific projects; the general public/student body do not have access to our student production equipment, including computer and production lab space.
  4. We are limited by resources, time, and copyright law in our duplication services. Also, we are unable currently to record from cable television due in part to the funding crisis.
  5. Superman says hi.
