Television Production

The BFA in Television Production specialization is designed to introduce the student to the principles and elements of TV production so that at the end of the program the student will be equipped with the knowledge, understanding, and technical skills of Television Production as a powerful tool for mass media communication.  Television Production students will be required to learn ideation and idea development, teleplay writing, the grammar of film and television, and how to produce and direct live and live-on-tape productions of different TV formats.

The program will challenge the student to think critically and creatively and master cutting-edge techniques and technologies. Students will be expected to express themselves by producing video projects, newscasts, commercials, dramatic programming, and more for multiple platforms.

The Television Production curriculum offers a well-rounded study of the creative and technical aspects of the discipline(s) within the broader context of a liberal arts and film education.  Enhancing the curriculum are dedicated activities that help the student to discover and bring their “own voice” to this exciting field. Access to state-of-the-art facilities in the NAFTI Television Studios allows the student to become skillful in using equipment that reflects the industry today. The final year student productions are designed, produced, packaged, and sometimes aired on national and cable televisions. These works are worthy of inclusion in their professional portfolio.
