Mass Communication Center


Students in TV studio

A critical component of the Mass Communication Center is the opportunities we provide for television and video production.

Students involved with the MCC learn valuable skills in the exciting world of studio production, field production, and broadcasting.

Shows produced by students specialize in the news ("Insight", "Express News"), sports ("End of the Bench"), and entertainment ("What's Bruin'") genres. Every crew position is offered as practicum work to students taking COMM 2200 (Beginning Video Production) and COMM 2310 (Intermediate Video Production - News).

Students in COMM 2510 (Advanced Video Production - Documentary) specialize in documentary film projects from initial conception, through the production process, and product distribution.

Through MCC-TV, students get hands on practicum experience:

 • Shoot on locations on campus and around the valley with state-of-the-art high-definition cameras.
 • Edit using the latest computer systems, editing programs and technologies.
 • Broadcast through cable and web distribution sources.

The shows developed through COMM 2200 and COMM 2310 are as follows:
