Students in Rider's Digital Media: Film, TV, and Radio major have the opportunity to participate in classes tailored especially to their interests. They learn the secrets behind successful production in small, hands-on classes in the Department of Communication and Journalism's Television Studio, equipped with state-of-the-art Macintosh computers, in the field, and in Rider's radio station. In addition to the classroom experience, students can have their own shows on The Bronc WRRC-FM, even as freshmen, or participate in The Rider University Network's programming lineup.

Note: Students may not carry a double major within the department. Communication and journalism majors may declare only one minor in the department. No more than two courses may be used to meet the requirements for both a major and a minor in the department.

If a student receives a grade lower than “C” in a course required in a major or minor in the department, the student must repeat the course. Credit will only be awarded once for a course that is repeated. The student must also repeat the course before enrolling in any course for which it is a prerequisite.
