BEA Membership Benefits SOC Students

Webster University School of Communications (SOC) has joined the Broadcast Education Association (BEA) as an institutional member. The membership will offer benefits to SOC students, particularly those studying interactive media. The BEA is a professional association for industry professionals, faculty and students interested in teaching and researching electronic and multimedia.

One of the benefits of the SOC membership in the BEA is that students will receive a discounted rate to the annual BEA convention. The annual Broadcast Education Association convention will be held April 7 through April 10, 2013 in Las Vegas.

Students are invited to attend an informational meeting on Friday, Feb. 1, 2013 at 5 p.m. in the TV studio across from the media center to learn more. Other benefit information is available on the BEA web site.
