Salt’s Radio+Podcasting track focuses on skills, tools and techniques for telling a compelling story with sound.
Student cohorts engage in fieldwork, assignments, class discussion, instructor feedback, and peer critique, to learn how to:
- Identify, pre-report, and evaluate a possible story;
- Carry out successful interviews;
- Use interview tape and other elements to build and shape a story; and,
- Write and edit, and produce polished work in ProTools, the industry standard for audio editing.
Students also gain critical experience pitching work and marketing themselves as radio producers.
Over the course of the semester, students will produce a variety of short audio assignments as well as an in-depth final project.
Graduates of the Radio+Podcasting track leave with a portfolio of work ready to start or build upon their audio careers. Armed with a deeper understanding of how to tell stories with sound, our alumni have gone on to hold positions at leading global news outlets and podcast companies.
