DIGITAL MEDIA

AND RADIO-TELEVISION FILM PROGRAM

 

The Digital Media and Radio-Television Film Program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville allows students to gain expertise in digital media, radio-TV programming, news reporting and documentary filmmaking. Degrees and a variety of specialties are available in each of the specialties in the program. In addition, with its own university radio and television stations at the students’ disposal, those taking courses in this area often gain valuable career-boosting experience.

 The student radio station—KTAI 91.1 FM—is led by students, under the supervision of faculty. It allows students to do “live” broadcasting while serving as “DJs” or by hosting a variety of original programming that covers everything from sports to national and international issues. TAMUK TV2—the university’s local cable station—allows similar opportunities with student positions available in reporting, editing, producing and directing.

 Recently, the digital media program has developed an emphasis in production for television, film and livestreaming. Students learn to hone important skills through a variety of coursework, including production of documentary films and shorts.
