About Delta's Program

Delta College offers students an opportunity to earn an associate of applied arts degree in Electronic Media in one of two exciting tracks.

  • The Broadcasting Track teaches you the history of radio and television and introduces you to the technical skills of audio/visual production and editing. You'll dive into nonlinear editing using Adobe Premiere. You'll work with classmates as reporters, writers, videographers and editors on the student production, The Palm, using Delta Quality Broadcasting's studios and labs.
  • The Digital Film Track is largely designed for those who would like to be independent filmmakers. It's also suited for those who intend to continue course work in film after their time at Delta College. If filmmaking is anything, it is a collaborative art form. It's difficult to make films without a network of talented and passionate people to rely on. This program is a great way for students to grow their networks.

Our program provides students with a strong educational foundation with information and experience necessary for entry level positions in broadcast, multimedia production, communications and information industries.
