Film and Broadcasting

Standards: Arts, Media, and Entertainment

Whatever the form or medium of creative expression, all careers in the Arts, Media, and Entertainment sector require "publication" or a public presentation in one way or another.

Some pathway courses satisfy the University of California subject requirements in Visual and Performing Arts ("f"). The intent of the "a-g" subject requirements is to ensure that students have attained a body of general knowledge that will provide breadth and perspective to new, more advanced study.

The courses are formatted to include opportunities for students to be exposed to various facets of the Broadcasting industry, such as various studio tours, film college visits and job shadowing. Students also participate in work based learning to assemble projects requested by other school departments and area businesses in order to gain experience from start to finish. Additionally, students operate Aztec TV which broadcasts school news on a regular basis. Click here for latest productions.
