Last updated: 3/23/20 12:12PM

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

Thank you for all your patience and goodwill as we figure out how to move classes to online instruction, and how we can best support you during this time. Advisors have shifted to online advising, and you can find information about how to schedule time with them at For any other questions please consult this page of contacts

Please make sure you are in touch with your professors about their plan for moving to online learning. If you have any trouble reaching them, let us know.  Please note that nobody will have to come in to meet course requirements. Your instructors will make sure there are ways your assignments can be done without coming to campus or meeting in groups.

Students should now be able to access Adobe CC using their email accounts. 

Hunter College is closed, but there are many emergency support resources available to students. Check here for more information.

The equipment room and our undergraduate department labs will be closed until further notice.

The department office is running virtually. Email for info.

Thank you for bearing with us, and for your patience with staff, faculty and one another as we all try to adapt to this stressful and changing situation.

Film and Media is a resilient, resourceful, compassionate community and I have faith in our ability to come together and support one another even when we can’t do it in person. 

Keep an eye on your Hunter email accounts, are there are important new announcements from various Hunter offices and from your instructors. Check CUNY and Hunter websites for status updates.

Most importantly, prioritize the protection of yourself, your family and your community.  Follow the advice of the CDC and our state and city officials. And feel to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

Chair, Dept. of Film and Media Studies
