Student pursuing a radio/audio production concentration in the WMLN studios at Curry College

If you are interested in a radio/audio production concentration, you have the opportunity to follow in the path of alums who have studied broadcasting and audio at our college for over 80 years! Curry's radio broadcasting program is one of the oldest in the country, tracing its origin to 1932. Back then, Curry students arranged for a schedule of broadcasts over WLOE, the radio station at the Hotel Bellevue on Beacon Hill in Boston, where our student broadcast readings, plays, and impersonations.

Other COM Concentrations:

You may also create your own concentration through our Individually Initiated Concentration option. Examples of IICs include photojournalism, event planning, and political media management.

Semester in LA, NYC, and DC

Curry students can apply for a once in a lifetime experience – a semester away. Our students have lent their talents to Hollywood movie sets, to NBC, and even The White House. They’ve set the stage for the crime scenes on CBS’s Criminal Minds, and have learned how Jimmy Kimmel keeps us all laughing. These are just a few of the incredible opportunities available when you choose Curry.
