Student Opportunities

MCTV Media Production Program

MCTV offers a one of a kind, dynamic and exciting television production experience to students enrolled in the Media Arts Technologies program and other related programs (Computer Science, Music, etc.) at Montgomery College. This paid production aide position will combine intensive media production training with real-life experience to provide a unique opportunity to those who are dedicated to furthering their media career goals. Studio, Electronic News Gathering, Electronic Field Production, Graphic Design, Editing, Digital Media Applications and other opportunities are available throughout each semester in a variety of crew positions.

Just a few of the many shows and events our students have participated in:

  • Student Academic Awards Ceremonies
  • MC Commencement
  • Performing Arts Series
  • Montgomery College Sports coverage
  • Guest lectures and much more

To be considered for employment: students must be taking a minimum of six credits, be enrolled in or have completed TVRA 120-Television Production (or have other related media production experience), be available to work in a 4-hour (or more) block of time, and work a minimum of 12 hours per week. This is a competitive opportunity; only 8 students will be hired to work with MCTV per year. The term of work is two semesters. Students must demonstrate a high level of commitment and growth in their overall performance, and may be employed by MCTV for up to five semesters. Employment is dependent upon the student’s ability to meet the academic and general attendance requirements and a successful interview with the MCTV Student Program Manager.
