Diploma in Broadcast Journalism | Geomatika

Diploma in Broadcast Journalism offered by Geomatika is a program with focus on strengthening the skill in reporting, writing and production with relevant practical and professional education. A Diploma in Broadcast Journalism prepares the student to update the public on all types of news. Students in this program learn the basic skills of proper news reporting, including the interview process and segment writing. They also learn how to produce the news by managing video and audio equipment, locating sources, properly conducting interviews, writing scripts for TV or the radio, recording sound clips, and editing audio and video.

A Broadcasting Journalism student also learns to work under pressure and handle deadlines. Students currently enrolled in school often opt to work at an on-campus digital marketing department; some complete an internship somewhere off-campus to gain working experience.
