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.
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.
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.
