Film making isn’t just an art, It is an artistic, scientific and technical weaving together of narratives with aesthetic skills, craft and technique that allows the viewer to not only feel, but also to be moved emotionally. This we strive to bring about in the Department of Cinematography and Broadcasting (CBS).
In the Department of Cinematography and Broadcasting, we combine the skills of our professional cinematographers and broadcast experts to give our students the required training need to emerge the best in the industry. The Department of Cinematography and Broadcasting is relatively new in Rivers State University having been created from the Department of Mass Communication. The Department boasts of Professors, Readers and Senior lecturers skilled in Cinematography and Broadcasting who are focused on producing the next generation of Cinematographers and Broadcasters with the skill to communicate through aesthetic, well-horned crafts, and artistic methodology.
The Department of CBS offers students a wide range of production opportunities through the University’s radio and TV (EXCEL Radio & TV) studios. These Radio and TV studios offer hands-on production experience for students studying to build careers in Film, Cinematography and Broadcasting.
