If so, you are eligible to be awarded a degree honoris causa from Laurel College as part of a program developed in cooperation with radio and television ownership groups and organizations in the United States, Canada and Europe, through our Robert Weston Smith School of Broadcast Communications.

This degree honors your professional experience and commitment to your craft as a broadcaster, announcer, program host, producer or voice talent, and includes a separate honors certificate and letter of conferment.

ELIGIBILITY: Minimum four years of verifiable fulltime employment in a broadcasting-related field. Available to honorees in all countries worldwide. Degree recipients may be nominated by their employer, trade/craft organization or themselves.

An honoree is only eligible for a degree level that has been attained or surpassed; for example, an honoree with five years of experience is eligible for a Bachelors degree (minimum four years experience). Upon attaining additional experience, previous honorees may advance to the next advanced level of degree honoris causa. Eligibility is subject to verification.
