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)
