The Television and New Media Productions program at Loyalist College reflects the needs of the rapidly expanding content creation field in the television and new media industries. Students acquire a solid background in all crew positions and specialize in one or two areas of concentration. In the third-year of study, students focus on individual areas of specialization, choosing specific roles in digital filmmaking, remote event production and creating content for outside clients. Scripts written in first year and developed in second year come to life in third year with a public screening at an area theatre. The academic year ends with a live awards show celebrating the excitement and creativity of student achievement.
