Film and Television Summer Institute – Creative Producing

College students study the role of the creative producer or executive while engaging in entertainment industry internships

Study the contemporary film industry while building relationships with industry professionals

Creative Producing lets college students study the role of the creative producer or executive while participating in entertainment industry internships. In class, students study the history of the Hollywood studio system and gain a critical perspective of the contemporary industry. In their internships, students apply those skills “on the ground” and build important relationships with industry professionals. In this way, the Creative Producing track is the perfect combination of theory and practice and contributes to a well-rounded liberal arts education that will benefit a wide range of majors from the humanities.
