Broadcast Electronic Media Arts (BEMA)
City College of San Francisco
CCSF’s Broadcast Electronic Media Arts Department (BEMA) prepares students for university transfer and provides lifelong learners and degree holders the opportunity to upgrade workplace skills and prepare for career transition.
From a selection of 47 classes offered throughout the year, students can learn about the design and creation of content for electronic media with a focus on writing, storytelling, teamwork, leadership, production craft skills and emerging technologies. Media literacy is emphasized throughout the curriculum.
Graduates either transfer to a university or seek employment in radio, television, video production, cable, broadcast news, advertising, public relations, sound reinforcement, music recording, interactive media, corporate and industrial media production.
The BEMA Department has a strong transfer agreement for students who want to transfer to San Francisco State University (SFSU) as Broadcast and Electronic Communications majors. BEMA also coordinates with SFSU-BECA to offer a tour and visit to SFSU-BECA for BEMA students interested in transferring to that program.
