MASTER OF ARTS IN FILM AND MEDIA
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Johns Hopkins Master of Arts in Film and Media provides an in-depth curriculum designed to develop skill sets required to succeed in the film, television and media industries. Students are exposed to the latest technology, taught the most current financial and distribution strategies, and trained in advanced narrative techniques.
Our MA program emphasizes developing professional relationships within the film and television fields by introducing students to award-winning artists and internationally renowned industry leaders from Los Angeles, New York and abroad, through workshops and master classes. Courses are held at The JHU/MICA Film Center, the 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. This intensive two-semester studio experience, co-taught with MICA’s MFA program, focuses on the development, production and post-production of narrative audio-visual content and takes full advantage of the Film Center’s cutting-edge facilities.
The Business track revolves around a two-semester seminar, taught by veteran development and acquisitions executives. This Fundamentals of Business seminar is structured around presentations by internationally renowned industry leaders, who –together with students– analyze case studies in the film and television industries. Students are required to develop their own business plans, investor decks and marketing plans and present them to invited executives, investors and entrepreneurs.
Students in the Sound concentration will acquire hands-on experience in creating and recording sound effects, dialogue and music as it pertains to film and media projects. Leveraging the experience and resources of The Peabody Institute and featuring a new sound studio co-designed by Thomas Dolby and Scott Metcalfe, the Sound concentration provides students the opportunity to perform their audio work at the highest level.
Award-winning screenwriters and television writers lead the intensive workshops in the Writing concentration, centered on analyzing and polishing original narratives. Students create and strengthen their writing portfolios as they design, draft and polish their feature length screenplays, television spec scripts and television pilots. Master classes are offered by guest executives, agents and executive producers, providing excellent opportunities to network within the industry.
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.
