Hands-on learning

Messiah’s media, culture and technology students enjoy several distinct advantages. First, our close proximity to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the state capital, provides numerous internship opportunities in television, radio, new media, video production and more. We also encourage students to hone their production, writing and broadcasting skills on campus through The Pulse, Messiah's media hub that takes an integrated, multi-platform approach to news reporting on campus and incorporates all student-run media outlets.

State-of-the-art facilities

Another distinct resource for our media, culture and technology students includes using our brand new 1,740 square-foot media lab facility in Hostetter Chapel. The space includes studio cameras, news set, studio lights and a corner-placed, endless floor green screen (as well as several portable green screens). It also features a control room, where you can control and edit a live broadcast taking place in the adjacent studio. Computer stations and monitors allow you to control the audio, switcher, graphics, teleprompter and color correction. In addition, a Foley sound studio allows you to create sound effects and other audio in the post-production of media.

Faith integration

The media, culture and technology major also provides foundational knowledge for serious media study. The most unique aspect about this major at Messiah is that it is studied through the eyes of a Christian scholar, allowing you to integrate your faith in the exciting field of communication.
