Radio Drama: Theater of the Mind
Long before television took the world by storm families gathered around their radios to listen to all-acoustic dramatic programs known as radio dramas. The Department of Communication is reviving the glory days of old-time radio dramas such as The Shadow, Dick Tracy, and Orson Welles's infamous The War of the Worlds with our new Theater of the Mind series.
KENW is a public television and radio station that broadcasts from the campus of ENMU. KENW offers access to professional equipment and first-class facilities to students interested in gaining professional broadcasting experience. You earn course credit while working for on-air programs such as Sports Look, the nationally syndicated Creative Living, or the student-run weekly news program News 3 New Mexico. Opportunities for hands-on experience include audio and video production, on-air talent, news reporting, graphic design, floor directing, camera operations, and more. If you are interested in getting involved with KENW, contact your academic advisor.
As a graduate student, graduate assistantships offer valuable experience and financial support. Graduate assistants in the Department of Communication are hired on a yearly or semester-by-semester basis, depending on your qualifications and departmental need. As a graduate assistant, you are primarily responsible for teaching lower-division undergraduate communication courses; in some cases you may also work with faculty as research assistants or assisting in other department-related duties as needed. The University waives out-of-state tuition, allowing graduate students to pay tuition and fees at in-state rate. If you are interested in applying for a graduate assistantship, submit the Application for Graduate Assistantship form to the department's Graduate Coordinator.
