Overview

Students work closely with faculty members to devise an optimum program of study integrating creative and collaborative thinking. This liberal arts approach to film, television and new media provides the student with the necessary skills and knowledge to adapt to the changing media environment.

Goals

Many Film and Media students are looking to enter the rapidly growing film, television and new media industries in Georgia and around the world, and our curriculum is designed to offer opportunities in hands-on mediamaking instruction while also grounding students in a solid understanding of media history, industry, technology, culture, theory and criticism.

In our studies classes, we rectify the imbalance of most education, which spends years teaching people how to think about the words they read and almost no time teaching them to think about what we see and hear. Critical thinking about film and media is a crucial life skill for being a citizen in our world.

Much professional employment in the 21st century is involved at some level in the production and consumption of media. Participation in contemporary society means communicating your perspective through well-crafted media messages. The Film and Media major from Georgia State University is dedicated to broadening the range of voices heard in American culture (including perspectives that are often marginalized because of race, gender, age, class, rural status, gender identity, ethnicity, body image, disability, sexual orientation, religion or political orientation) and to critically examining the functions of mainstream images in our culture. Those are lifelong pursuits that are desperately needed in today’s society and today’s marketplace.

Careers

Many of our students have become editors at post-production facilities, generalists who know how to light, record and build sets at small full-service productions, freelancers and entrepreneurs. Some of our most noted alumni include Tom Luse, executive producer of “The Walking Dead” and Christopher Escobar, executive director of the Atlanta Film Society.
