    Western Kentucky University School of Media offers five dynamic workshops where students can spend six days immersed in their passion: broadcasting, news reporting, film or photography. Each course is taught by an experienced professional from the award-winning School of Media and will broaden the students’ awareness of their field in a fun, intensive and hands-on workshop.

    Workshops are designed for high school students interested in broadcasting, journalism, film or photography (grades 10-12).

    Broadcasting (TV Production)

    • From story generation to field videography to live studio recording, you’ll enjoy every step of the creative process as you take your project from concept to a polished final video. Whether you have previous media experience or not, the faculty will cover everything you need to know: camera fundamentals, live studio operations, advanced interviewing techniques, nonlinear editing, visual graphics and more.

    Brodacasting (Radio Production)

    • You will pitch story ideas, learn how to write for the ear, conduct in-person interviews, gather natural sound using a Zoom audio recorder, and edit a final production either individually or as a group that will be shared with family and friends.

    Multiplatform Journalism

    • Xposure will bring together skills in reporting, writing, visual journalism (photo and video) and use of social media for each student, with a goal of producing a report on a subject of intense interest to today’s youth and other news and feature stories.


    • The WKU Summer Film Workshop is an intensive six-day program designed to take high school students through the entire filmmaking process, from pre-production to post. 


    • Our summer workshop is your opportunity to spend six days learning how to fully understand your camera and composition, enabling you to create strong photographs with your individual vision.
