Whether you want to be the next Steven Spielberg or produce the latest summer blockbuster, it takes a solid mix of creative abilities and business savvy to make it in this fast-paced industry. An ideal way to get started is by pursuing a Media and Culture degree.

 The curriculum begins by exploring the cultural, social and political impact of media. Later, you’ll pair these insights with training in an impressive array of behind-the-scenes technical skills, such as video and audio production, graphic and motion design, and many others.

Your studies will culminate in either a media-related internship or capstone project.

Every organization has a message that they want to share, and that means they need highly experienced media professionals.

With your dual creative and business skills, you’ll be particularly prepared for positions in entertainment law, film distribution, finance, lighting design, marketing, media production, screenwriting and more.

Specific positions you can pursue include:

  • Advertising executive
  • Cinematographer
  • Editor
  • Entertainment attorney
  • Film/video director
  • Media or policy analyst
  • Sound editor/mixer
  • Television/film producer
