Entertainment and Media Studies
What is unique about EMST compared to other film/TV production or media-studies programs? Unlike those that ask students to choose between applied production skills or academic study of media, EMST melds the two. Students gain professional-level skills and valuable tools for conceiving what stories are worth telling. This combination helps students tell stories with greater depth and significance and gives them an understanding of the implications of visual storytelling in society. And EMST is a program in which students benefit from nationally and internationally expert faculty located at Georgia’s flagship research institution.
The EMST program develops industry, governmental and academic innovators and leaders who work in, develop policy for, and study media-entertainment industries nationally and globally. It provides majors with a broad palette of skills and knowledge to help them become versatile media practitioners. Professionals commonly move many times from one area/industry to another during one’s career. Career interests change, and media industries are horizontal and interconnected. The EMST program presents unique student opportunities through the Cannes Festival Study Abroad program and the Grady LA Domestic Field Study program. Finally, it also draws on alumni networks in key centers including New York and Los Angeles.
