About CTEMS 

The Morehouse College Cinema, Television, & Emerging Media Studies Program (CTEMS) was established in 2012 through an implementation grant from the Andrew Mellon Foundation. The overall mission of CTEMS is to provide quality introduction to the intellectual and artistic study of film and television with primary focus on the craft of storytelling as the foundation for impactful creative productivity.

The program prepares students for further study at the graduate school level and/or for professional entry-level careers across visual storytelling industries. The major emphasis is on screenwriting in addition to film analysis (film theory and criticism) and history (domestic and international beginnings and developments) cinematic vocabulary, film production, African American cinema, and Hollywood politics. To declare the CTEMS major, students may submit the CTEMs major application during the designated period each semester.
