Broadcast Journalism classes prepare students for a future in film, television and journalism. Students learn a variety of skills including newswriting, research and reporting, as well as technical aspects of production like videography, editing and sound recording.
Students work individually and in groups to create a nationally award-winning newscast, The Mustang Morning News, which is broadcast live to the Mira Costa campus and later posted on our website.
The show is a public forum for student expression, and staff members make all content and editorial decisions in accordance with the California education code and free speech law.
Students compete and win awards at national journalism competitions and conventions, and alumni of the program have continued their work at prestigious film and journalism schools.
