Ivy Tech and Circle City Broadcasting launch Multicultural Media Producing Program
Ivy Tech Community College and Circle City Broadcasting have teamed up to create a new program for those interested in becoming news and media producers.
The Multicultural Media Producing Program, or MMPP, is a one-year degree program open to all students and based in Indianapolis.
The program is made possible by the DuJuan and Tina McCoy Foundation, Ivy Tech Community College Indianapolis, Circle City Broadcasting, and JP Morgan Chase.
The program is the first of its kind and aims to promote diversity in the workforce.
Students will complete nine courses over 32 weeks, with a 16-week internship at Circle City Broadcasting.
At the end of the program, the students will earn an Ivy Tech certificate in professional and community communications.
This initiative aims to give opportunities to underserved populations to move into leadership ranks and media production. Please enjoy the full interview above to learn additional information and details.
