Television and Video Production Program
Milwaukee Area Technical College students enrolled in the Television and Video Production program have the opportunity to learn and work in the studios of Milwaukee PBS, a national leader in high-definition production and programming.
Students acquire industry-standard skills for broadcast TV, cable, and corporate or commercial video. This is one of the few programs in the entire country in which students gain direct, hands-on experience with HDTV production and broadcasting.
The Television and Video Production program is just one example of the critical hands- on aspect of what students at MATC learn. Many MATC programs allow professional experience that makes a big difference when starting a career.
