The WHUS Training Program is your path to involvement at WHUS. There are countless ways to get involved, whether you shine in the spotlight, or prefer behind the scenes work. With a fully equipped on-air studio, several production studios, an extensive music archive, and remote broadcast capabilities, make use of what we have to offer!
If you’re interested in becoming a DJ, producing a music or talk show, broadcasting UConn sports, writing or producing audio journalism, mastering audio production or anything in between, this is the place to start.
To become broadcast certified, sign up for the WHUS Broadcast Training Program, available to all UConn students, faculty, staff, and members of the surrounding communities. While the WHUS training program is open to all, please be aware that we give preference to UConn Storrs undergraduates when creating the class roster and we often receive more interest than we can accommodate.
If you don’t want be on the radio, but want to be involved at WHUS, look at the dropdown menu under the get involved tab for a look at our other departments. If you have any questions, please reach out to Kate Ariano at email@example.com
