"If you can dream it, you can do it."
BFA, COLLEGE-CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC
The Electronic Media Division, a department of UC's College-Conservatory of Music, has been an innovator in media education since the late 1930's. Initially created as the radio extension of the Cincinnati College of Music, this program became the first collegiate broadcast department in the country.
In 1955, the Cincinnati College of Music merged with the Cincinnati Convservatory of Music and brought the Radio-Television arts department into the newly formed College-Conservatory of Music (CCM). Renamed the Electronic Media Division in the late 1980's, the current program offers a Bachelor or Fine Arts as well as a minor in E-Media that emphasizes creative multi-platform storytelling and allows students to gain production expertise in either video, audio, interactive or multimedia journalism.
