Broadcast & Electronic Media has joined Graphic Design and Web/Multimedia in one integrated department: Digital Media. This new department prepares students for employment by providing interdisciplinary knowledge and skills.

Growing channels of communication ensure demand for media content, and College of San Mateo is helping to train the next generation of media makers.
  • Get hands-on training in small crews.
  • Use digital video equipment in a professional setting -- right inside a working broadcast station, KCSM.
  • Expect rigorous training in both studio and field production, camera operation, audio recording, and lighting.
  • Start building your demo reel with real world project assignments, like :30 TV spots, features, promotional, educational, and training videos.
  • There's no waiting here. You will start using professional broadcast equipment right away.
Our student training facility is located at KCSM in the San Francisco Bay Area, the heart of the sixth largest media market in the USA.
  • KCSM broadcasts 24 hours a day .
  • Students witness the behind the scenes environment of a
    24-hour TV and FM station.
  • Students have easy access to talented and experienced professionals working in the broadcast industry.
Begin your exploration of broadcasting with DGME 100 Media in Society, which is not a production course,
but it provides the essentials:
  • Trace the history of radio, television, and the Internet
  • Examine how electronic media affect society
  • Participate in discussions of media ethics and popular media theories
  • Analyze the role media plays in your own life
