Creative Media Production

CMP program overview

Creative Media Production (CMP) majors use Gaylord College’s state-of-the-art facilities in a program ranked first in the state and second in the nation to become professional storytellers through hands-on learning and real-world experiences.

A major in CMP is ideal for the student interested in using sight, sound, motion, and words to tell informative, persuasive or entertaining stories and who wants to pursue careers in media industries such as film, corporate production, radio or television.
