Electronic Media

Return to all careers

E-media gives students hands-on experience in audio, news production, and much more. A person majoring in E-Media can get behind the scenes jobs in film like being a film producer, screen writer, and doing sound and filming. E-media majors can also get jobs in the news industry, either behind the scenes or in front of the camera, or in the music industry as an artist, engineer, record producer, and executive producer.

As a creative person, e-media majors may want to play many roles in their careers. E-Media students that include entrepreneurship courses among their breadth of knowledge (BOK) elective classes get a well-rounded education and the ability to set themselves apart from other performing arts graduates in the job market. Taking entrepreneurship classes will help students to learn the skills to promote themselves, like marketing and branding, and to manage people. Someone may want to start his or her own music company and having the skills to write a business plan, which incorporates all business functions including accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, operations, and sales, would be extremely helpful. Through entrepreneurship classes, an e-media student could have a better understanding of organizations they work in, and may have a better chance at accelerating in their organizations. They also may gain important managerial skills that will help them to succeed in any business endeavor.  Overall, an e-media student may gain exposure to business relevant materials and skills that may make them more hireable.


An e-media major that studies entrepreneurship may pursue careers:

a. Recognizing opportunities to invest in or start a new business, like a news station
b. Managing relationships with clients and other people in a work environment
c. Starting a film or audio production company
d. Gaining skills to promote oneself or your organization
