Learn, Experiment, Professionalize. Show the world the best ESCS has to offer.
E2 is a weekly TV programme that the School of Communication and Media Studies has broadcasted on RTP2 since May 2004. This show, a component of a pedagogical project of multidisciplinary training, is a 25-minute magazine that covers various fields of knowledge. The contents featured draw from the various fields of Communication taught at ESCS, from topics and issues addressed in the remaining schools that make up the Lisbon Polytechnic, and from the external community it engages with directly. Issues are covered in several formats (reporting, interview, or vox-pop) enabling each student to get hands-on experience in each of them. Occasionally, special episodes are developed (e.g., "A day at the RTP") that allow students to develop a complete script for an episode. An extracurricular activity, E2 is an innovative and youthful-minded project, geared towards developing professional skills, open to the participation of students from every course. In addition to the TV magazine, E2 is also responsible for carrying out numerous partnerships established by the ESCS: from the coverage of conferences and film and music festivals to the production of programmes in places of interest to the School; in the 2019 edition of Futurália, E2 put together the entire programme regarding that event, including an on-site live broadcast of an interview for the Panoramic feature. E2 seeks to bring into the ESCS the dynamics and production processes of the real-world audiovisual market, empowering students for a wider learning in their fields of study via real professional experience.
