Broadcasting, Videography and Motion Arts at Hastings

When you step on campus as a first-year student, you can get involved – producing stories for HC Media, streaming and announcing athletic and campus events and creating motion graphics for video packages and screens across campus. You’ll work alongside juniors and seniors to gain their insight and expertise, but you won't have to wait until you’re a junior or senior to dive in and get involved.

Video and broadcasting at Hasting College funnels through digital media and other courses in our Department of Visual Arts. Broadcasting and videography today go well beyond pointing a camera. Advertising agencies, corporations, media, small businesses — and more — are all screaming for video for websites, social media and traditional media, and all require motion graphics, story telling, lighting, production, composition and the right professional "look" for their organization.

Building your skills

The depth and expertise of our Department of Visual Arts faculty help you develop your graphic and design skills so you'll graduate with broad video, design and motion expertise and know-how. And the hands-on experience through our Center for Applied Media Arts and internships get you ready to dazzle future employers with your skills and video resume.

Development difference maker

Since every student has a specific path or career in mind, you'll take a professional development course your first semester.

This course helps you explore your goals and work with a professor to map out the best classes across campus to take for the career you have in mind. Courses in everything from professional writing to the fundamentals of business, and communication studies to marketing, are all in play and there to help you create not just any professional path, but the path that belongs to you.

Graduate with experience

Students studying motion arts and broadcasting at Hastings College do a lot more than spend time in classrooms. You’ll be out across campus developing, producing and sharing stories. You'll be broadcasting sporting and music events. You'll be developing motion graphics shown on the big screen in the arena during big games — and big events.

Our Center for Applied Media Arts provides all these experiences plus opportunities to complete special projects for all parts of campus, from our marketing office to academic departments looking for something creative.

Through these experiences, you’ll make connections and earn a quality internship that provides additional real-world experience that matters so much in today's job market.

At every step in your path you'll appreciate the stepping stones of teaching, counseling, inspiring, supporting and guiding from our engaged faculty. It's an experience that's true to Hastings College and you won't find it anywhere else.
