Communication students use professional level facilities to practice their various crafts; from newspaper layout through web and graphic design to video production.
Students in video classes work in Castleton's brand new fully equipped television facility with a four-camera (one robotic) green screen studio, camcorders and DSLRs, LED, Chimera and other soft lights, and Kinoflo studio and portable lights, audio station with 32 track mixer, and Adobe Premiere edit bays. Other computers run Photoshop, Dreamweaver, After Effects and a variety of other software.
Journalism students work out of The Spartan office, located in the Communication Department. They use industry standard print layout software to send pre-print files to a professional newspaper print facility. Broadcasting students often use the WIUV-FM facility.
Two 20 station computer labs and the Academic Computing Center in Castleton's state-of-the-art Stafford Academic Building supplement the new Communication Convergence Lab, all running industry standard imaging, web development and multimedia software.
