GALLATIN, Tenn. (AP) - Volunteer State Community College is offering a new Entertainment Media Production program starting with the spring semester.
According to the school, the degree will get students plugged into the entertainment industry in Tennessee. Tracks include concentrations in audio and music production, music business, multimedia and web design, and video production.
The program offers certificates, which are designed to get students into the workplace. Those certificates can be applied towards an associate of applied science degree.
Program director Steve Bishir said the school is developing a recording label that will combine student work in all parts of the music business. He said students will have a portfolio and the experience of working as a team.
Spring classes start January 17.
