Career-oriented Champlain College in Burlington, Vt., is introducing new bachelor’s degree programs this fall in Broadcasting, Mass Communication, and Marketing–which offers concentrations in Advertising or Marketing Management. With Champlain’s existing programs in Public Relations, Professional Writing, and Multimedia & Graphic Design, the new programs establish a dynamic team of offerings in the communications area. “The College has built a deep collection of programs,” said Nancy Kerr, director of the new Broadcasting and Mass Communication programs. “Champlain students will earn solid communication skills and they can choose to specialize in one of several exciting career fields.” The Broadcasting degree balances theory and practice, preparing students for work in areas such as television, radio, audio, video and digital production. New courses include broadcast management and programming, audio production, advanced video production and broadcast journalism. Students will gain hands-on experience with industry-quality equipment in a refurbished television studio, as well as in internships at Burlington-area media outlets and companies. “The curriculum is designed to give direction to the creative expressions of students, to offer them diversified technological expertise, and to provide them with practical training in writing for the media, media production and media management,” Kerr said. The new bachelor’s program in Marketing offers two career concentrations: Advertising and Marketing Management. Students spend their first two years learning about all that marketing has to offer from advertising and customer relationship management, to sales and Internet marketing. “We’ve designed this program so students get the fundamentals and a real-world understanding of marketing in their first two years, and they are well prepared as juniors to study a career concentration that matches their interests and goals,” said Elaine Young, the program director. The program provides two internship opportunities, including a competitive honors internship in the students’ senior year. “Hands-on learning is a vital component of our Marketing program,” Young said. “These internship opportunities reinforce students’ classroom experiences, and the added incentive of competition in their senior year will give students the opportunity to showcase the skills they will bring to the marketplace.” New courses such as account and brand management, non-profit and social marketing, and advanced advertising round out the marketing core. In the College’s new Mass Communication program, students will earn communication skills that can be applied to a broad range of careers. A required internship helps to further define career interests. Students will learn how their communications operate within a context of cultural, economic and technological factors. Through an understanding of this context, students will be poised to create ethical and enlightened work in the communications arena.

RelatedPosts Djokovic clinches fifth Italian Open title Djokovic zooms to 10th Italian Open final Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Rafael Nadal came through his first stern examination at the US Open to move a step closer to a maiden Flushing Meadows meeting with Roger Federer. The Spanish second seed dropped a set for the first time in the tournament but still saw off 2014 champion Marin Cilic 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-2. Nadal was clearly irritated when given a time violation as he served midway through the second set, and was broken moments later. But the three-time champion quickly shrugged it off to march into the last eight, with a stunning around-the-net winner bringing up match point to the delight of an Arthur Ashe crowd which included Nadal’s friend Tiger Woods. “It’s an easy shot to describe, but difficult to make,” said Nadal. “I don’t know, I think I followed the ball good because he had a good volley and I saw it. “I ran fast to the ball and I saw at the last moment there would maybe be a small space on that side. “I think it was the only way to win that point. I hit it well, but to hit that spot you need some luck.” It is a statistical quirk that Federer and Nadal, rivals across 15 years and 40 matches, have never met at the US Open. But defending champion Novak Djokovic’s exit has opened up the possibility of a box-office final between the pair. Federer faces Grigor Dimitrov, a player he has beaten seven times out of seven, in the last eight. Nadal will take on Diego Schwartzman after sixth seed Alexander Zverev ran out of steam in his bid to reach the quarter-finals for the first time. The 22-year-old had already played 14 sets in three matches before taking on Schwartzman in round four. He took the first set but Argentinian Schwartzman hit back to win the next two. There was controversy when Zverev was given a point penalty after an audible obscenity, giving Schwartzman a 5-2 lead in the fourth. Umpire James Keothavong had earlier issued a warning when Zverev smashed a ball away, but the German claimed he had not heard it. “I mean, a code violation is fine. I didn’t even argue that,” he said. “But neither of us heard me getting a warning in the first place. “So it was like, OK, a warning is fine, it’s no problem, but why am I getting a point penalty? “He said he gave me a warning before. I didn’t hear it. Diego didn’t hear it. Most of the crowd didn’t hear it. “OK, it happened. It happened. It’s fine. I think the umpires next time should let me know about it.” Matteo Berrettini, the Italian 24th seed, roared through in straight sets against unseeded Andrey Rublev. Russian Rublev had previously beaten seeded players Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios but he found Berrettini too strong, losing 6-1 6-4 7-6 (6). He will play Frenchman Gael Monfils, who looks to be playing some of the best tennis of his flamboyant but injury-hit career this fortnight. Monfils beat Spain’s Pablo Andujar 6-1 6-2 6-2.Tags: Flushing MeadowsMarin CilicRafael NadalUS Open
There has been a recent spate of pitch-invaders at matches around the world, and to be fair to the game’s top players, they seem to be taking it well.Cristiano Ronaldo was the latest one to stay classy during Saturday’s match inGranada—a 4-0 Real Madrid win—when a young fan decided to start hugging him and then refused to let go. Ronaldo humoured the fan before security guards finally took over while it looks like Sergio Ramos also had to endure a hugging session. Nice behaviour by the Real stars, but with pitch-invaders increasingly being treated so nicely, surely it only encourages more people to follow their lead?And you have to worry about the day somebody has more dangerous intentions than a mere hug.
