LaGuardia’s New York City location makes it possible for our media programs to offer students a significant advantage--our faculty is made up of working professionals in film, television, and radio, and of scholars in the fields of cinema and media studies.
In addition to learning from our faculty, Media and Technology students have the opportunity to hear from filmmakers and broadcast professionals who are invited to the campus to screen their work and share their experiences, and from visiting industry professionals who talk with students about emerging digital technologies, the business of entertainment and communication media, and prospects for careers in these fields.
Faculty and staff members will play a crucial role in your progress through our media programs and throughout your time at the college. As academic advisors and mentors, they will guide you through the curriculum—from your freshman experience, to adding the finishing touches to your e-portfolio. Your faculty advisor will assist in application and transfer to B.A. B.S., or B.F.A. programs and will offer career guidance. For students with outstanding accomplishments, faculty and staff mentors will encourage and assist those students in submitting their work to student film and screeenwriting contests, uploading projects to social networking sites, building a website, and applying for scholarships.
LaGuardia students also have access to guidance from an extensive support network, including: freshman counselor, internship advisor, and Office of Student Life (room M115, x 5188). You may make use of the Employment and Career and Services Center (room C102, x5235), the Office for Transfer Services (room E261, x5185), and the Center for Counseling, Advising, and Academic Support (room C239, x5250). You can also take advantage of other services, including tutoring at the Writing Center, Speech Center, Math Lab, and Reading Lab. There are also open computer labs in many campus locations that are available to students at all times during the college’s operating hours.
