As an Affiliated Project of the Florida State University Student Government Association and the College of Communication and Information, WVFS offers the opportunity for students working at the station to earn FSU credit hours through RTV 4800 – Broadcast Operations and Management, and RTV 3941 – Radio Practicum. Both courses are Instructor Permission Only, and qualify as FSU Liberal Studies Formative Experience credit.
Much like an internship, each credit hour earned through WVFS RTV classes requires a minimum of 15 to 20 hours of quality work. RTV 4800 is a three credit, pass/fail, non repeatable course. RTV 3941 may be taken for one, two, or three credit hours per semester of pass/fail credit, and may be repeated up to nine credit hours. At the approval of the Faculty Advisor, students may also be able to complete Directed Individual Study or Internship credit (as approved by the student’s Academic Advisor and Station Faculty Advisor). Verified volunteer, non credit work hours may be counted toward Servscript hours.
If you would like to be considered for class credit, please contact the Station Faculty Director (in advance when possible) and plan on attending the V89 Cattle Call for the semester (at which options will be highlighted). Before enrollment, students must be hired into a station department or approved in advance for credit hours.
Contact the Faculty Advisor directly to make arrangements for class credit.
