Lab 123

Lab 123

The Department of Media, Journalism and Film facilities are distributed between Williams and Bachelor halls. Faculty offices are sprinkled throughout these buildings and where most MJF courses are held, although a few may be scheduled in Upham, McGuffey or even the Engineering Building's classrooms.

Williams Hall contains two computer classrooms, two traditional classrooms, one film editing lab, several individual film-editing and audio-editing studios, a full broadcast news sound set and master control studio, and a radio production studio. The building has a student lounge and several conference rooms, as well as an equipment checkout facility where students can user their ID's to borrow anything from a digital SLR camera to digital voice recorders to digital video camcorders for class projects. In a separate Williams Hall suite of rooms, Miami students operate WMSR Redhawk Radio - news, sports, music and live talk - with the latest in radio broadcast technology.

Each of the two Williams Hall computer labs - in rooms 123 and 227 - have 20 new Macs outfitted with the latest Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and other software integral to multimedia work so that students can step right into the professional world with experience and confidence. They are open to students for lab hours most afternoons and early evenings. A separate film and broadcast-focused lab in Williams Hall has Macs outfitted with Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premier and other video editing suites.

Control Room

TV Studio Control Room

Our state-of-the-art, high-definition TV studio and master control has two sets and a multi-camera set-up for live shows and recorded interviews. It offers students the professional world experience in an academic setting - and our myriad grads working in broadcast and film attest to the quality of the Miami experience.

Bachelor Hall, which is also home to the English and Math departments, has numerous classrooms and digital lab spaces. Bachelor 264 is one such lab, holding two dozen of the latest Macs outfitted with the Adobe Creative Suite 6 Premium and many other media-centric software packages.
