Media Arts

Students with a passion for media learn the basics of TV and film production, including scripting, producing, filming, and editing. The media principles learned and hands-on experience provide an enormous head start for potential communications majors.

Professional experience is acquired by all Media Arts students, as they produce broadcast-quality coverage of Don Bosco events, including our high-profile sporting events. They also produce the school’s daily morning show as well as podcasts and photo projects.
