Western Texas College Mass Communications Department

The Mass Communications program at Western Texas College can prepare you for a career in journalism, radio broadcasting, public relations, film, and television.

WTC offers a two-year, Associate of Arts degree program in Mass Communications that utilizes the campus radio station for Project-Based Learning.

At WTC’s own 91.1 FM KGWB, you will:

• Work with state-of-the-art equipment
• Produce announcements and programs
• Prepare news and sportscasts
• Broadcast WTC sporting events to a local and worldwide audience
• Learn the inner workings of a radio station.

Mass Communications majors at Western Texas College become station staff members and gain valuable on-the-job experience. You’ll have the same responsibilities you might have in a commercial broadcast operation. As part of your degree program, you’ll create a professional portfolio through a 16-week internship at a commercial radio station.

Course Information is available in the Catalog.
