Why become a Broadcasting Major?

When you step on campus as a first-year student, you can get involved – producing stories for HCTV and HC Media Online, announcing athletic activities and streaming campus activities. You’ll compete against juniors and seniors to get experience, but you’ll not have to wait until you’re a junior or senior to get behind or in front of a camera.

As a Broadcasting major, you’ll select a primary content area. Most students select Public Affairs or Sports Reporting, but if working with your advisor, you can customize your content area to match your interests and goals. As a result, a B.A. in Broadcasting requires students to select at least one content emphasis as part of their education.

Hastings College Broadcasting majors run their own production companies, serve as reporters across the U.S., teach and win Emmys. Alumni have worked for “Late Night with David Letterman,” “The CBS Evening News” and Disney World. One student’s clip shot at the NAIA Division II Women’s Basketball Tournament was featured on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”
