Program Design

The Media Technology certificate program provides exposure to current media technologies. It is intended for students who are technically-oriented and wish to work in technical positions in the fields of radio, television or video production. It concentrates on skills that are necessary for working behind-the-scenes in media and communications. Classes are highly practical and provide significant hands-on opportunity, allowing the student to apply classroom theory to real-life projects.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of all Media Technology certificate program requirements, graduates will:

  1. Write copy for radio and television.
  2. Operate still and video cameras and edit.
  3. Write scripts for radio and television programs.

Total Credits Required: 18


*Becoming Connecticut State Community College

A merger of Connecticut’s 12 community colleges is underway. As a part of this merger, modifications will be made to academic programs. Students who do not complete their programs by the end of the Spring 2023 term will be matched with the Connecticut State Community College (CT State) program that most closely aligns with ​the student’s Spring 2023 program and is offered at the current Manchester Community College location. The College is committed to students completing their education with a minimum of disruption. Further details can be found and will be updated on the Frequently Asked Questions page:

Because many courses in this program are offered on an occasional basis, students should meet with an academic advisor or faculty advisor to plan their program of study.
