Information Reporting Technology: Captioning
Associate in Applied Science in Captioning is a 67 credit-hour program that prepares students for appropriate certification tests upon completion of the program.
Certificate of Proficiency in Captioning is a 50 credit-hour program that prepares students to become Certified Broadcast Captioning (CBC) certified.
Broadcast captioning is an outgrowth of the court reporting field and is a highly developed skill that is used to translate spoken communication into visual communication. A stenotype machine is connected to a state-of-the-art computer with special closed-captioning software that allows the writer to caption the spoken word in various TV/news programs, classrooms, conventions and conferences. A broadcast captioner can assist millions of deaf and hard-of-hearing persons by captioning television and news programs.
|The Certificate of Proficiency for this program has been deactivated. Those students currently enrolled in the certificate program will be permitted to complete their studies but no new students will be admitted. Please see an advisor if you have any questions.|
