About the eProduction Degree

Description

To begin a career in producing on-demand visual media content, this degree prepares you to distribute high-quality video content for the internet, smartphones and other interactive technologies. You will learn how to acquire, edit and recode media for multiple delivery platforms, and gain hands-on experience at Milwaukee PBS studios.

The need for employees skilled in the electronic production of content on-demand is growing as businesses strive to reach consumers via new technologies.

You can earn the TV/Video Field Production Assistant technical diploma on the way to completing this degree.

Additional program details: Skill development will focus on quality production, emphasizing media message design, digital content management, and multiplatform avenues for delivery of the message.

Research indicates that fewer individuals rely solely on their televisions for video entertainment and other programming, and content on-demand means that media must be made available more broadly, easily and personally.

Successful employment requires strong visualization skills and an acute imagination, as well as computer, math and communication skills.
