In an age where media is a bigger part of our lives than ever before, students are showing a keener interest to pursue further study, or even enter into media careers. Understanding the impact modern media can have is a huge advantage in today’s world, and the wide range of creative and technical careers available within the media industries offer exciting opportunities for an equally wide range of students. The USA has one of the one of the biggest and most culturally impactful media industries in the world, and a USA Media Studies tour delivers students right into the heart of this fast-paced, ever-present, creative and influential field.
There is an enormous range of paths one can take for a career in the media, whether it be a creative, technical or more journalistic direction. In filmmaking alone there is a huge diversity of careers, from directing and set or costume design, to producing, lighting, even accounting! On our USA Media Studies tours, students will be immersed in the world’s largest film industry, and have the chance to study some of these career pathways close up. Through guided tours and workshops, students will discover first-hand how US film studios operate, and understand how this impacts the industry worldwide.
A USA Media Studies tour is an unparalleled opportunity for students to learn about film production from the experts, visit some absolute icons of the movie business, and do some projects of their own! Los Angeles and New York are both ideal options, with active and thriving film industries. Students will be able to get an exciting inside look at major film studios, such as Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros, and Walt Disney Animations.
Taking your students on a USA Media Studies tour will inspire and excite them like never before, while giving their practical knowledge in the field of film and media an invaluable boost.
