The Media Studies program at Sacred Heart Greenwich offers students the opportunity to learn in a hands-on, real-world environment. After a year in the Intro to Filmmaking elective, Upper School students can specialize in Multimedia Production, Creative Filmmaking or Real World Filmmaking. The annual Film Festival allows students to share their work with a wide audience. Media Studies provides the foundation for a lifelong journey as many of our alumnae pursue careers in the field. Students learn from alumnae as class speakers and mentors via the Alumnae Media Network.
Broadcast Journalism is a real world, hands-on experience for students of all ages. Students regularly receive local, national, and international awards for their videos.
"TODAY FROM THE HEART" and the FILM FESTIVAL
Broadcast students produce a monthly news show, "Today from the Heart," using an actual set from the Today Show. Students in all four classes produce videos that can be entered into our annual film festival.
Broadcast Journalism is a popular elective in the Upper School. Students begin by taking Into to Filmmaking, and then they may choose one of three classes:Broadcast Journalism, Creative Filmmaking, or Real World Filmmaking.
EMPOWERING STUDENTS FOR THE FUTURE
Broadcast Journalism is not merely an elective at our school… it is the first step of a lifelong journey for many students. Our alumnae go on to study at top media and filmmaking programs. We connect students with media professionals and internships to help our alumnae pursue careers in communications, media, and filmmaking.
