Spring on the York College campus

Mass Communications

If you like learning by doing — getting on air, producing segments, writing news copy— you’ve found the right place.

Imagine if you could apply for a job after graduation and be able to tell a radio or television station, “Yes, I’ve used that before.” That’s the York College approach — we give you exposure to audio, radio and video production, news gathering and reporting, copywriting, announcing, and field and control room equipment. It provides a strong foundation for broadcasting related careers, or corporate or independent work.

You can use our state-of-the-art equipment, and what’s more, get guided instruction from professors who have real world experience.
