CMT and FVM include all of the electronic and media industries that we use everyday to inform entertain and distract ourselves. These industries include the old media, (radio, TV and film) and the new (internet, cable, digital media). There are multiple opportunities for those who are ready to work hard and understand how these media work; how they communicate and what they provide to the audience. Highly competitive, they can afford to take only the best and hardest working applicants. At La Roche we provide students with the opportunity to gain a thorough grounding in how these industries began in order to understand where they might be going. Good writing, clear communication skills, imagination and hard work are all cultivated in the major in order to prepare students for their lives in media.
Many of our upper level courses are often taught by local media practitioners. Michael Bartley of WQED, Mary Robb Jackson of KDKA and Mark Barash, program director at WPXI have all taught in recent years.
