USC Annenberg’s Media Center

USC Annenberg’s Media Center has cutting-edge production facilities and state-of-the-art equipment for Annenberg students to produce content on every platform imaginable. 

This unique classroom, laboratory and incubator gives students real-world experience in a real-world environment. Highly visible and transparent, the media center is a 22,000-square foot, two-story complex created with donor Wallis Annenberg’s vision of a student-run media center in mind. 

Faculty advisors with decades of industry experience guide student editors and producers, lending a fresh eye to stories and finding teachable moments. Annenberg students work in the media center as part of their coursework and as volunteers, fulfilling leadership opportunities that prepare them for the workforce. It is a space for experimentation, where students create podcasts, tell stories in Spanish and Mandarin, broadcast television and audio, write long-form pieces on diverse topics, and create new ways for the USC community to get news.
