Ever thought about a career in television? The television and video practicum allows students to gain experience both in front of and behind the camera. The Otterbein TV staff, along with Dr. Jeff Demas, leads the students in shooting, writing, editing, and producing footage for the station. With opportunities to work on This Week at Otterbein, Campus Refresh, and cardinal sports broadcasts, students are immersed into the art of television production.
Operations Manager and sophomore JAMC major Jon Bozeka finds the practicum beneficial for both the students on staff as well as the ones taking the course.
“The practicum is overall a great experience. It gives you a firsthand look at TV, a chance to work with individuals at all skill levels, and puts you ahead of the game compared to other college kids in your situation,” said Bozeka. “Only at Otterbein is it possible for a program to give freshmen experience like that from the first time you see the equipment.”
The Otterbein TV practicum meets Wednesdays at 4 p.m. and is worth one credit hour.
