Moving Pictures and Hearts
Sounds and moving images have the ability to capture our imagination, leaving us with memories we donít soon forget. Those who know how to wield media can impart their messages to thousands, if not millions. As Christians, we have a vital messageĖGodís wordĖ and the duty to share it with whoever will listen.
Christian broadcast professionals can use the power of film, radio and television to spread Godís message far and wide. Even in secular broadcasting, a superior technical knowledge coupled with faithful Christian character can yield dramatic results. If youíre called to spread the gospel in creative ways, with aesthetic flair and strong faith, Southeastern can give you the skills youíll need.
Southeasternís broadcasting program begins with our Christ-centered liberal arts (general education) core curriculum, where you develop an understanding and appreciation of God and His creation, human creativity and reason, and our place of responsibility as stewards in the world God has made. As you forge links between what youíve learned in the core and the more specialized courses in your major, our hope is that you also begin to relate all that you learn to your life and your faith.
Learning by Doing
Broadcasting is a field that must be learned through doing, and Southeasternís broadcasting program provides hundreds of hours of hands-on training with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment. Unlike broadcasting majors at other schools, Southeasternís program enables students to start working with equipment their freshman year. Throughout the program you will learn how to write scripts, operate cameras and editing equipment, and manage productions. And if youíre interested in film, you can study the industry for a semester in Los Angeles through our partnership with the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU).
While Southeasternís program emphasizes experiential learning, it also is supported with robust theory, so you will not only learn how things are done in the television and film business, but why. Your training will culminate with either a 300-hour internship working in a professional studio, leading to a Bachelor of Science degree, or fulfillment of a language-course requirement, leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. The BS degree is designed for students going directly into the field. The BA is geared for students who plan to attend graduate school.
Southeasternís broadcasting graduates have taken their know-how to the coastal production hotspots of New York and Los Angeles and just about everywhere in between. Our goal is to make Southeastern students the most professionally trained out there. This thorough preparation puts them in high demand with film studios and television and radio stations. Some Southeastern alumni choose to affiliate with Christian broadcasts, others with secular studios. Either choice can offer equally rewarding opportunities to witness for Christ.
Broadcasting alumni who go to graduate school do so with a solid understanding of trends and communication theory to build upon. Take a look at what some of our broadcasting alumni are up to now:
- Television producer at Daystar Television in Dallas, Texas
- Videographer in Baltimore, Maryland
- Production coordinator at Benny Hinn Ministries in Irving, Texas
- Radio producer in Miami, Florida
