Students in the control room of the Hirsh Communication Center at Curry College, pursuing a television/digital video concentration

WATCH: The Communication Program at Curry College

The field of television and video production is exploding with possibilities. Perhaps you have an interest in TV news reporting or maybe you want to direct a Hollywood sitcom. How about streaming video programs on the web or even overseeing a live sports production? 

Curry's television/digital video concentration prepares students for entry-level positions in television and video production and/or on air opportunities. Students may find career choices at local and network television outlets, commercial production houses, cable facilities, LA, New York and Boston-area sound stages, and Internet video sites, to name a few.

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.
