International College of Broadcasting (ICB) offers an opportunity to enter the broadcasting media with the training and expertise usually associated with experience. A Two-Year Associate Degree in Communication Arts in Television and Radio offers the combination of classroom studies with "hands-on" training in fully equipped studios, and in much more depth than usually found in even a four-year college.

The need for trained personnel, both behind the scenes and in front of an audience is evidenced by the strong demand for qualified individuals in the technical and highly competitive fields of Radio and Television. As one of the few colleges in the country offering a two-year intensive training program, the industry counts on our graduates to fill ever-present positions in all areas of broadcasting.

In March of 1992, ICB added a modern recording studio, in which classes are taught for a Diploma Program for Recording/Audio Engineering. Presently, this is one of only a few recording engineering programs being offered at an accredited college in the state. An Associate Degree in Communication Arts in Video Production/Recording Audio Engineering was instituted in November, 1994.
