Regional Higher Education provides access to Ohio University degree programs for commuting students throughout southeastern Ohio. Student may attend classes at regional campuses in Chillicothe, Ironton, Lancaster, St. Clairsville, and Zanesville, at centers in Proctorville and Pickerington, or access classes through distance technologies. Both the Associate in Arts and the Associate in Science degrees are available on all campuses, and an array of technical programs leading to either the Associate in Applied Business or the Associate in Applied Science is available on most campuses. Students interested in pursuing a baccalaureate degree can complete at least the first two years of nearly all of the baccalaureate majors available at Ohio University, before relocating to the Athens campus to complete their degrees. In many cases students can go well beyond the first two years, and in selected programs the entire baccalaureate degree can be completed. Currently, students enrolled in general business, education, criminal justice, communication studies, communication in human services, specialized studies, food service administration, and nursing can complete the entire baccalaureate degree program on a regional campus. Regional campuses also offer, in cooperation with the Athens campus, on a rotating basis, selected graduate degree programs in areas such as elementary education, special education, educational technology, journalism, engineering management, social studies, social work, and public administration, as well as others, in their service area.

Regional campuses have an open admissions policy for high school graduates. Ohio high school graduates who can commute from home to one of the regional campuses will be admitted as regular full-time or special part-time students. This decision is based on the high school transcript, Scholastic Aptitude Test, or American College Test (preferred). The regional campuses have no residence halls.


Chillicothe

Ohio University-Chillicothe, founded in 1946 as the first regional campus in Ohio, is located on a 100-acre campus on the western edge of Chillicothe, 45 miles south of Columbus in rural south central Ohio.

Electronic Media (A.A.S.)

Major code AA5013

Ohio University-Zanesville, Ohio University-Southern, and Ohio University-Lancaster offer a two-year program of study leading to an Associate in Applied Science in electronic media. The program is founded on the belief that through intensive individualized instruction in a hands-on atmosphere, you can prepare in only two years for a beginning position in the electronic media (radio or TV stations, cable TV, corporate communications, or production houses).

Along with those who want a production-intensive education, high school graduates who wish further preparation in order to begin their college careers in the School of Telecommunications on the Athens campus can benefit from the associate's program. The program presents you with the opportunity to sharpen your skills before relocating to the School of Telecommunications on the Athens campus. More than 90 percent of those students who complete the associate's degree and then relocate to Athens secure a bachelor's degree. (A 3.0 g.p.a. is expected for relocation to Athens.) Others who complete the A.A.S. degree move immediately into communications positions.

The radio-TV studios feature multitrack audio recording, radio operations, and computerized video editing equipment. The state-of-the-art facilities, broadly based curriculum, small classes, and internships have proven invaluable for students who want to obtain a full view of the field of electronic media. The department is particularly proud of the fact that a majority of all electronic media students spend time as interns or part-time employees at area stations during enrollment. Recent graduates are now working throughout the United States in the communication industry.
