Cinema, Television, & Emerging Media

There is no better place to learn about movies, television, and new media than in the media capital of the world, New York City.

Beginning in Fall 2021, this major will be renamed as Film and Media Studies. Students interested in media production should major in our BFA in Film and Media Production.

Why study film and media at MMC?

CTEMStudents in the Film and Media major (formerly Cinema, Television and Emerging Media) will be introduced to the history, theory and industrial practice of these forms through courses that focus on the language and techniques of film, writing for television, the role of emerging technologies, connections of digital media and society, and the American and global television industry.

The NYC Advantage

With an outstanding and dedicated faculty who encourage students to take full advantage of the city that surrounds them – think museums, archives, film festivals – a wealth of opportunity is at your footsteps in this major.

Unique Internship Opportunities

Remarkable internship opportunities are available in diverse settings such as talent agencies, film festivals, and television and film studios, showing students how the skills they learn in this major can be applied to a career they love. Our students have interned at such prestigious places as the Harbor Picture Company, The Tonight Show, The Dr. Oz Show, SONY, Allied Integrated Marketing, Epic Records, and the Brooklyn Film Festival. A producer, screenwriter, film critic, and a director are just a few of the careers students accomplish with this major.
