This certificate program is open to students majoring in RTVF, journalism or converged broadcast media. Interested students must apply and be admitted into the restricted television news producing certificate program. Students must complete 15 hours in RTVF and journalism plus one 3 hour elective course for a total of 18 credit hours. Both departments recommend an internship in a professional news operation (radio, television, web, etc.) to supplement the program, although the internship is not required for completion of the certificate.
