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.
Many part-time studies students seek a "credential" as part of their program of studies. The courses required to obtain a Management Certificate in Broadcast Communications are listed here. Students intending to pursue this Management Certificate must choose a specific program (Radio, Television or Broadcast Journalism). We also offer an Associate Certificate in Professional Editing and a Certificate in FilmFLEX.
Students who have completed a Management Certificate in Broadcast Communications may apply for "direct-entry" into the second-year, day school courses of their specific program, space permitting. Applicants must successfully complete a four-week day school practicum from late-April through mid-May in the spring prior to entering the second year of their program. All usual application procedures and prerequisites for day school apply.
Program and course selection should be done only with the guidance and advice of a Program Advisor. Each applicant's education plan must be reviewed and approved by the Broadcast Communications Associate Dean and Part-time Studies Coordinator.
