Question by indielove09: How do you become a teacher of film?
My aspiration is to become a teacher of film (or tv production and mass media) But I’m not sure how to go about doing this. All corses that I have seen so far in secondary education require a dual major such as english, math, etc. As you might have guessed none of these are film. How do I go about accomplishing this goal? What corses should I take? Where should I take them? All the help you could give me on this subject would be greatly appreciated for I am greatly confused.

You should be able to study media studies with English, or drama. If you have any experience in film, that will be an obvious bonus. If there are not Universities in your area which combine media studies with a core subject, you could always “add” the film aspect of qualifications through a seperate college course. In the UK it is possible to take a film related degree course and then do a seperate post grad year PGCE for teacher training and you’d end up being a film specialist in a secondary school BUT you would need to be able to offer another subject, ie English with media/film. Good luck!
