We are proud to have been awarded the 2019 President’s Distinguished Achievement Program award.

Students should be prepared to learn during additional hours in studios and to travel for field placements, as well students will be assigned to work on the Radio Fanshawe Inc. broadcast properties during holidays and weekends on a rotational basis. For students interested in studying further, Western University and Fanshawe College have developed an articulation agreement, which gives you the opportunity to obtain an honours degree in Bachelor of Arts with a major in Media, Information and Technoculture (MIT), as well as a diploma in Broadcasting - Radio and Media Production. Students may start at Fanshawe, transferring into the third year of the MIT program, and complete both credentials in only four years. Though our main focus is job-readiness in the radio industry, many of the skills learned are transferable to other industries.
