Media Technologies and Production

At Emerson, our students are always creating: filming movies, hosting their own shows, editing video, mixing sound, and more; Media Technologies and Production (MTP) is here to help make that happen.

We ensure that students have access to the highest-quality equipment and technology so they are primed for success in their fields after graduation. MTP oversees the use of this industry-leading equipment, production facilities, and post-production centers, thus facilitating student projects and supporting the creative work of students, faculty, and staff. 

Mission Statement

Our Students

Keep reading to see what some of our students have to say about working at MTP.

MTP has a great collaborative and non-intimidating environment where you can jump right in and get involved. It does not feel like you are working at all. I learn a lot and have a free range to explore.

I love the creative freedom that working at Media Technologies and Production allows me. They encourage me to share ideas and are open to making those ideas into future films.

I get to have a perspective on the Emerson ecosystem. Especially having relationships with the heads of the departments across Emerson. I have applied what I have learned from each of them in my own work. Furthermore, I have never had a question that I felt I could not ask at MTP.

Emerson Productions is a collaborative space, and as a student, I am able to have a voice here. I chose Emerson because it is different from what a college is supposed to be. I want to work and grow and be ready for the workforce, and MTP allows me to be challenged creatively.
