online available

In this performance-based course, students are introduced to the verbal and non-verbal elements that are utilized in broadcast announcing. Focus is placed on the verbal basics such as breathing, pitch control and articulation, along with the non-verbal fundamentals of paralanguage and body language. These rudiments are paired together with copy analysis and script marking to give students a full understanding of the process of announcing in the many different fields of broadcasting. Practice in script reads, vocal exercises and self-evaluations give the student ample opportunities to understand and showcase these new techniques.
