Coffeyville’s Digital Communications program is designed to be a scale model of a broadcast facility through production, programming, and broadcasting. Through the use of broadcast equipment, students are given the opportunity to get hands-on experience on the college-owned cable channel 21 and through web streaming.
There are many opportunities for varied field experiences. At CCC, the production crew of cable channel 21 has opportunities seldom open to students until they begin their junior-senior course work. The classes you select will prepare you for transfer to a four-year institution and will provide you the technical skills to enter the professional field after graduation.
The first two years of study are similar for all students planning a degree in Digital Communications. In the two year Digital Communications program, students are given the opportunity to produce programs that appear either on Cable Channel 21 or online. Students are also able to help in the broadcasting of various campus events such as football and basketball games, theater events, and music concerts. Coffeyville Community College is now entering the digital age with new systems in digital editing and computer graphics.
Two teams of broadcast students won the 2011 Kansas Skills USA Contest.
The CCC Broadcast program won the 2009 Skills USA National Championship.
