The three SCS Studios offer hardware, software and work spaces well suited to video and audio production for interested students from all disciplines, not just those focused on media production. With tools ranging from consumer-level to professional and assistance available by appointment, the studios are a great place for students to learn, develop production skills, practice presentations and enhance their academic work with multimedia products.
