Are you ready to report the facts, provide insightful analysis or take a stand and produce a documentary that represents a specific point-of-view?
Do you see yourself as a news anchor on CNN, or reporting on the latest developments in sports or entertainment? Or maybe you’d like to travel the world making documentaries about Africa, Asia, or important community issues right in your own backyard?
You can do any and all of these things as a News and Documentary major. Through Dodge College you will have unique opportunities to travel to the centers of the news business in Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C. as well as to explore the issues best captured in documentaries both locally, through our Community Voices program, and internationally, in countries in Africa, Asia and beyond.
Using our 4-camera, state-of-the-art high definition television studio, industry-standard technology like iNews and Avid, state-of-the-art digital cinema cameras such as the Red One and Sony F65, and camera and sound packages dedicated to documentary field production, our students create and produce:
- A live weekly newscast
- Travel, wildlife, and social issue documentaries
- Reality pilots and sizzle reel
We also maintain and program our own cable-access channel, Channel 6 in Orange, Calif. (also broadcast on Channel 99 in U-verse), which reaches the entire Los Angeles and Southern California market. This enables us to produce shows such as weekly newscast live over our own channel.
