Are you ready for prime time?

Media surrounds our lives, informing us, entertaining us, connecting us with others, and generally helping us through our day. And for some of us – consuming media just isn’t enough; making media is a passion that begs to be served. That’s where we come in. We help students embrace a broad range of media skills: television, radio, film, new media, broadcast journalism, photography, animation, media management, and more. Students can leave our program with portfolios with real world media experience.

Our robust facilities give students hands-on, real-world experience. On any given day, our students can be found shooting sporting events for live TV broadcasts, doing live TV newscasts, shooting and editing films, creating animations, conducting live radio shows, building websites and blogs, developing film and photos in darkrooms, digitally retouching photos, and much more.

Our faculty is composed of passionate and accomplished individuals with a mix of advanced degrees and deep industry experience. Our mantels may be adorned with awards and accolades, but our greatest reward is always the success of our students.

In the classroom and beyond, we nurture a culture of achievement, creativity, and professionalism. EMC Productions uses a top-notch student crew to produce live television programs – programs like MTSU football and basketball games that are broadcast to the world on ESPN3 and elsewhere. Our student-run television station, MT10 and student-run radio station, WMTS give students opportunities to create and broadcast their own programming to a potential audience of over 250,000 people. Through the MTSU Film Guild, students produce their own feature films. Our official chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH is one of only ten official university chapters in the nation and provides opportunities for students interested in computer graphics and animation.
