Semester Hours: 3

Through the study and application of theories of digital audio production and contemporary radio programming, students produce complex, long-form radio features reflecting the various formats of today’s diverse digital audio market, both for terrestrial broadcast and online/mobile services such as podcasts. Students gain competency in pre-production, researching, field production, interviewing, and post-production, including writing and editing elaborate radio scripts. Students master the skills of editing and multi-track mixing on the latest audio software. They employ a variety of online/mobile distribution techniques, and are expected to develop a social media outreach component to reach target audiences and get their work heard in a variety of platforms. Projects include the conception, writing, and production of radio features and short documentaries, many of which will be broadcast on WRHU.
