Broadcast Communications offers a wide variety of interesting, stimulating and challenging part-time studies courses in the fields of radio broadcasting, television and video production, film, and broadcast journalism.
Registrants may wish to attend an information session prior to enrolling in Broadcast Communications part-time courses. These sessions are held at 1730 in Room SE10 161 (Television Studio One, just off the main lobby in the Broadcast Centre), on the last Monday in August and the first Monday of every month thereafter through June. (Where a first Monday is a statutory holiday, the sessions are held on the second Monday.) Confirmation of dates can be obtained by calling 604-432-8863.
For those who are new to broadcasting, we recommend our "introductory" courses as a first step. These are BCST 1150 - Radio Introduction, BCST 1160 - Television and Video Introduction and BCST 1170 - Broadcast Journalism Introduction. Students receive a solid grounding in each field and practical experience with broadcast equipment and procedures.
Take a single course, or work towards a credential — all at a pace that's right for you.
Part-time courses are offered in a variety of scheduling formats, including at night or on weekends, flexible day time delivery, or you can opt for distance or online learning. If you meet the prerequisites and there's space available, you can register for a course immediately. Courses are offered in each of three terms: Fall (September), Winter (January) and Spring/Summer (April).
