Mia Morton ?21 Mia Morton ’21 Mia Morton ’21 has been hired as a 2021 summer educator at Discovery World in Milwaukee. She will teach filmmaking, claymation, and photography. “My experience as a film and new media minor has been nothing short of a dream. While my chosen thematic focus was screenwriting, I’m so grateful that the minor covered so many areas and angles. I learned so much about production and how all forms of art can intersect and enlighten the creative process. In the near future, I am hoping to get my master’s degree in museum studies and to use all the skills I’ve learned and apply them to a career in museum education and digital curation.”

Congratulations to all the Photography and Film and New Media Program’s graduating minors!
