The electronic media major provides a superb foundation for a variety of careers in the ever-changing mass communication industry, including radio, television, audio/video, multimedia, integrated digital media production, web page design, and media management leadership.
UNI's Electronic Media program has the finest media facilities of any university in the state. The media resources include two television studios (one for broadcast journalism and one for creative film work), audio and advanced audio studios, media writing labs, and digital audio and video editing stations (featuring Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, and Avid editing systems).
Through their course of study, students are guided to become both critical consumers of mass media, and competent, ethical electronic media professionals in multicultural and global environments.
This major requires students to complete an internship or a cooperative education experience with a media organization in Iowa, throughout the United States, or an international setting.
