Welcome to the Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII), a state-of-the-art facility located in the heart of Georgia State University’s downtown campus. CMII serves students, faculty, and industry professionals and provides students access to emerging technology, combined with successful programs in gaming, film and television, and music. Our aim is to ensure that core arts and media training connects students to careers in the vibrant creative economy in Georgia.
CMII-coordinated degree programs in Game Design, Game Development and Media Entrepreneurship now enroll more than 900 students in CMII classes. We are also proud to offer our first MFA program in Virtual Production/VFX starting in Fall of 2022. Student enterprises are being created, media companies are partnering with the institute to develop creative ideas and demand is growing for access to our core production studio that includes virtual production. A widening group of colleagues from the emerging technology sector are also joining forces with us.
We have updated our policies and procedures to prioritize the health and safety of our community. All students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as the best way to protect themselves and other members of the GSU community.

Despite what we continue to face, I am filled with hope for the coming year. We know this unique moment will present opportunities for our students to develop the essential capacities of resilience and recovery from unplanned setbacks.
