Employment and Graduate Studies

The Film and New Media major program prepares students for a lifetime of creative and critical thinking and rigorous analysis of media, as well as a solid foundation for graduate and professional programs in a wide variety of disciplines and fields, as well as careers as filmmakers, scholars, curators, critics, educators, innovators and leaders in film and new media organizations and industries.


NYUAD has taught me to be curious about what I am yet to learn, stay open to the unexpected, and how to work effectively and compassionately with other people. My work is pushing me everyday to make a difference.
