A higher level of learning and experience

Radio, Television, Journalism, Public Relations -- Whatever your career aspirations are we have opportunities for you. Get involved, try out your skills, and gain valuable hands-on experience.

Produce, Direct, Edit, Shoot
 Our students work together with faculty and two full-time professionals to produce live sporting events, sports shows, and public affairs shows. Students work on their own to produce news magazine shows which air on our UT campus cable network. Check out UT:10, the 10-minute weekly newscast produced by the Comm-4100 TV Journalism class at the University of Toledo. The class is an integrated communication course that takes what are four separate courses at most other universities, and combines them into one class.
