Our majors and minors go on to careers in academia, medicine, the law, literature and the media entertainment industry, armed with the critical thinking skills that are the hallmark of an interdisciplinary liberal arts education. They are well prepared for whatever career they choose to pursue. In short, the Film and Media Studies Department plays a crucial role in the mission of Emory's College: to prepare students "to be responsible and well-informed citizens of the world."
Our majors are highly motivated, passionately enthusiastic and thoroughly trained in the perception and interpretation of moving images, and as well as the skills necessary to communicate their ideas orally and in writing.
They also can take courses in fiction narrative, documentary and avant-garde filmmaking, as well as screenwriting.
The new major and minor in media studies offer an interdisciplinary approach to the understanding of media.
