Overview[edit]

Founded in 1964 by Dick Robinson as a small, private school in Connecticut, offering only minor classes in radio performance, Connecticut School of Broadcasting has grown to become one of the nation's largest group of broadcast media schools and has maintained close ties to many leading media outlet corporations such as CBS, NBC, CNN, ESPN, and iHeart Media.

Instructional methods[edit]

Classes are taught by industry professionals who work in the business - a great starting connection source for their students. The Connecticut School of Broadcasting uses a seasonal semester schedule, providing 8-week day and 16-week evening classes in March, July and November. The Charlotte campus has an extended curriculum including new media technology, lasting eight months. All schools teach with a hands-on, learn-by-doing approach that helps adjust the student to a real world job environment.[3]
