The UTC Television Studio provides a centralized video production resource for students, faculty and staff. While our purpose is to serve the entire campus, we work closely with several departments. Communication students are involved in the operation of the studio as interns, volunteers and in classes such as Video I, Video II, and TV News production. The Division of Communications and Marketing relies heavily on the TV productions department for development of commercials and publicity videos.
