What Students are Saying

Current Students Talk About the Program

Patrick Manning
 "I gained a lot of theory and field experience double majoring in Communication and Public Relations at Carroll. The program in television production has greatly prepared me for my future endeavors. I have interned in Portland, Ore. television news (KPTV), and I also had the opportunity to intern at the national level on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto." I graduated in May 2009 and plan on pursuing a career in television news anchoring, reporting, or producing."

"I graduated from Carroll College in 2009 with a degree in Television Broadcast & Production with Marketing, and a minor in Communications. During the spring of my senior year, I had the opportunity to intern at the local television station, Beartooth NBC. Although the station is relatively small, this made it a good place for my first taste of television news as I had the opportunity to be involved in nearly every aspect of the production. The tasks I performed ranged from writing stories, shooting, interviewing, covering sporting events, rolling tapes in the production room, editing using the (old-fashioned but still useful) "tape-to-tape" method, as well as editing using software, rewriting wire stories, and even shooting my own anchor segments to use in my resume tape.  Although my internship was enjoyable, it was most useful in that it helped me find my forte in the journalism world, writing.

In January 2010, I will begin my studies in magazine journalism at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. I am thankful for the professors in the Comm department at Carroll for pushing me to set high aspirations for myself, and for encouraging me to go after what I have been realizing I was meant to do all along."

"I'm a sophomore this year and this program is actually what brought me to Carroll. I read about it in the prospector, our campus newspaper, on one of my tours last year and found that they started a film/tv production. I am a Public Relations major with a concentration in TV Production. I love film and everything it entails. I plan on moving to California for grad school in film. This program is small but growing fast. Its amazing what Carroll has offered us and its only going to get better. If you enjoy film, tv production, and/or broadcasting the program that we have is great for you."



Andrew Chenovick
My name is Andrew Chenovick and I'm in the class of 2010.  I grew up in Santa Barbara, California, and my high school had its own multimedia program which included a year of film production.  I had a lot of fun doing that, and had doubts about coming to Carroll for the reason that the school didn't have any film program to speak of.  Luckily, I came at the right time, as the broadcasting program is just getting off the ground.  This spring I took Basic Single Camera Production and got to make a news feature, a music video, and a documentary.  It has been great to be able to continue my interest in film and video production and I'm glad that Carroll is starting to expand in this area.
