Through the Broadcast Journalism program, students learn to write, shoot, and edit using the principals of broadcast news as they are exposed to every aspect of production. Students develop their production skills while creating a variety of video projects using the program Final Cut Pro. Through the use of Final Cut and iMacs, students become adept at digital nonlinear editing. The news and feature stories created by the students in the Upper School classes are edited together to create the Upper School news magazine, "ECTV News."
Throughout this program's 10-year history, participants have received top honors on a national level from the Student Television Network, as well as state recognition from the Arkansas Scholastic Press Association, including the All Arkansas Award and Best of the Best.
Students have also contributed to their school community through the production of special projects for Episcopal Collegiate School's Foundation and Honor Council.
Upper School students may choose Introduction to Broadcast Journalism and have the option of continuing this course by enrolling in Advanced Broadcast Journalism, an advanced level production and news reporting class in which students will further develop their production skills.
