The Johns Hopkins film and media studies department keeps getting bigger and better. This week, the university announced that it would be offering a new master’s program in film and media, with a particular focus on the business of film, writing for film and television, and sound production.The hands-on focus of the program of study continues the Hopkins film program’s tradition of getting students involved in the actual making of actual films. Students will be able to specifically focus on business (which “teaches the skills to develop business plans, investor decks, and marketing plans and offers the opportunity to present them to invited executives, investors, and entrepreneurs”); sound engineering (offering “hands-on audio experience in creating and recording sound effects, dialogue, and music for film and media projects,” and involving new Hopkins prof/80s pop star Thomas Dolby and his state-of-the-art studio); and writing (which “guides students as they build a portfolio and draft feature length screenplays, television spec scripts, and television pilots”).

The program will be based out of Hopkins’s new Station North hub for film and media education.
