Radio, Television & Film

Welcome to the Radio/TV/Film Department

The Program:

The RTVF Department offers a comprehensive instructional program in radio and television broadcasting, digital film production, and digital audio and video production. The Department provides a two-year curriculum for students majoring in the field resulting in the Associate of Arts Degree and/or transfer to a four-year institution and provides elective courses for students interested in related fields such as marketing, journalism, theater arts, and multimedia. Students may opt for 21-unit certificates in radio, television, film, or RTVF.

The RTVF Department also coordinates the Inland Empire Media Academy, whose mission is to, in part, establish an active partnership among local school districts, community colleges, universities, and businesses in order to provide extraordinary learning opportunities in the areas of radio, television, and film to high school, community college, and university students, as well as members of the SB community. This mission is accomplished in part through a strong partnership with KVCR-TV and FM where students in the RTVF program help produce news and entertainment programs for broadcast. This partnership ensures our students graduate from SBVC with practical experience at a broadcast station, leading to better employment opportunities.
