Bachelor of Arts

Media impacts our lives on a daily basis. From cinema and television, to smartphones and Facebook, media entertains us, informs us, and shapes the modern world around us.

At Georgia Gwinnett College, students are uniquely situated within a “camera-ready community” that embraces Georgia’s burgeoning film industry. Cinema and Media Arts Production majors gain hands-on experience with current digital media equipment and media techniques, participate in rewarding internships that connect students with industry professionals, and attend courses tailored to their interests and skills in various areas of film and other media industries.
