Students will learn how to produce professional quality radio and television productions under the supervision of NAU’s Electronic Media and Film Department (EMF) faculty and staff. They will also have opportunities to meet people who work in the broadcast industry and visit media production facilities. Students will be able to explore different careers in media and the educational paths to those careers. They will experience what it is like to live on the beautiful NAU Flagstaff Campus for a week. To ensure a quality experience, space is limited to 15 students and preference will be given to junior and senior Native American high school students. Each applicant must complete a 1 to 2 page personal essay explaining his or her interests in media. This is a competitive program. Those chosen for the workshop will be notified of their acceptance in the program by May 24, 2013. Graduates of this program will be prepared to explore careers in broadcast media, a field that has been historically underrepresented by Native Americans.
