Departments & Programs



Telecommunications is the study of a broad range of electronic media industries in a liberal arts context. Areas of focus include radio, television, cable, satellite services, telephony, multimedia, the Internet, and video games. Three major course concentrations focus on (1) the electronic media's influences on audiences and users; (2) the design and production of video, audio, and multimedia materials, including video games; and (3) the business, legal, and managerial aspects of telecommunications.

WFIU-FM and WTIU-TV, university-owned broadcast stations, and instructional teleconferencing media are also located in the Radio and TV Center alongside the Department of Telecommunications (TEL). The stations provide on-campus opportunities for part-time jobs and internships in electronic media production and operations. Off-campus internships are also available and strongly encouraged.
