The program emphasizes experiential learning and focuses on the latest trends and advances in the entertainment industry. All our courses balance practice with theory and are taught by successful artists and executives in the film, television and media world. Our program has been specifically designed to keep up with constant advances in technology, ideas and trends, both practical and aesthetic.

Courses and workshops feature current case studies that help expose students to the latest tools, equipment and resources in specific fields. The Johns Hopkins MA in Film and Media brings the industry to Baltimore, as our students grow their professional network while creating a two-way bridge between the local burgeoning film scene and the industry hubs in Los Angeles, New York and abroad. Courses are held at the JHU/ MICA Film Center, Baltimore’s new film studio and recording center in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District.

Students choose two concentrations from the fields of business, sound, and writing. While they specialize in two of these tracks, they acquire hands-on experience in developing, shooting, editing, and marketing original film and television content in the Graduate Filmmaking Studio.

The Film and Media Master of Arts program is tailored to students who wish to advance their current film and media career, those wishing to learn the radical changes taking place in the entertainment business, and those wanting to switch careers to the world of entertainment.
