Welcome to the Creative Media Industries Institute, 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 800 students in CMII classes. 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 will include virtual production later this year. A widening group of colleagues from the emerging technology sector are also joining forces with us.
COVID-19 is top of mind for all of us at GSU and I want to assure you that as we monitor the COVID-19 situation closely, 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. Masks or cloth face coverings are encouraged to be worn by everyone while inside CMII and all campus buildings.

This past year has taught us many things, but most importantly, it has shown us how to support one another and work through very difficult circumstances. Together we have gone through loss, change and adversity, and we will continue to support each other as we make it through these uncharted waters. We are a community that stands together through adversity. We go into the start of the academic year in a pandemic, however with a growing sense of optimism that we will return to a sense of normalcy in the near future.
