Graduates with a bachelor’s degree in Film and Media are currently in demand by employers in many industries.
Film has been the primary medium for storytelling for more than a century. However, theatrical cinema isn’t the only venue to consume films in today’s day and age. While digital media and television bring forth new forms of moving image culture, cinema continues to survive.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects 10% job growth for producers and directors between 2019 and 2029. Much of this demand results from the rising popularity of on-demand movies, streaming shows, and social media, specifically for reality entertainment. The BLS also projects 18% job growth for film and video editors and camera operators during the same period
A degree in Film and Media can help you make the most of these employment trends.
