The student experience also includes opportunities for hands-on involvement in programming and operations at Siena’s campus radio and cable TV stations, WVCR, and the campus newspaper, The Promethean.
Professional internships are an integral component of the program and have placed Siena students in such environments as CBS’ The David Letterman Show, Time Warner Cable, televisions and radio affiliates of ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, PBS and the Albany Times Union newspaper.
Students can combine courses in various ways to meet their interests.
