Program Description

The only way to learn the broadcasting business is through hands-on experiences.

In the Radio and Television program at Centenary University, you will benefit from our modern broadcasting facilities and collaborate with full-time faculty members who have worked professionally in their respective fields for many years. With our small class sizes, you will have the opportunity to jump right into various aspects of radio and TV production.

Our facilities include a state-of-the-art radio production studio located in WNTI, Centenary’s internet radio station, which offers radio equipment and software for students.
