BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Bloomfield College now offers a a BA in Broadcast Journalism and a BBA in Human Resource Management. What were once two undergraduate concentrations at the College are now their majors,.
The broadcast journalism program at Bloomfield College will prepare students for professional careers in electronic and print news gathering, analysis, and reporting.
This major is also for those who prefer to be "behind the camera." Students will learn how to operate microphones, recording equipment, and other devices. Students will also learn how to edit, produce, and/or direct the news.
Along with taking journalism courses, students will receive practical experience by providing content for the College's internet-based radio station, WBCR, attending special events on and off campus, and national conferences.
For over 10 years, the program has had a thriving internship program with students working at such institutions as: NBC, ESPN, WBGO, BET, WBLS, Pfizer, CBS-Sports, MTV, and DKNY.
Teaching in the program are Dr. Jeanne Nutter, Coordinator of Broadcast Journalism and Professor of Broadcast Journalism; Esther Dillard, Assistant Professor of Broadcast Journalism and former reporter and anchor in several television markets; Doug Doyle, award-winning journalist and news director of WBCR; and Karyn Collins, award-winning journalist and adjunct professor.
"The addition of the new Broadcast Journalism program expands the offerings in the Division of Humanities," said Dr. Nutter, whose list of accomplishments include nothing short of publishing books, creating exhibits, producing films that place in film festivals, and chairing and championing different organizations. "This program is unique because it offers students a background in radio, television, and print media. No other major offers this combination of courses."
Unlike the previously offered concentration by the College, which only allowed for a few courses in the discipline, the BBA in Human Resource Management will allow students to get full exposure to the HR field. This will better prepare graduates of the program for direct entry into HR departments within companies large and small.
The program will provide students with a broad overview of organizational management with an emphasis on how to best harness energies to build a better functioning workforce.
"Graduates will be able to directly enter the workforce upon graduation with the BBA in HRM. That is the beauty of the degree," said Dr. Julia Chambers, Professor of Business and Management Coordinator. "We focus on the wide range of disciplines within the HR field. Students get exposure to nearly every area and can select electives that are of interest to them, which allows for more specialty."
Depending on the student's HR interests, there are a number of specialties that fall under the degree, including training and development, compensation, employee benefit administration, labor relations, international HRM, HR strategy and planning, and HR systems.
