ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia State University plans to create a media production center in downtown Atlanta.

The school says the media center will be located next to Woodruff Park and will house the university’s new Creative Media Industries Institute.

The interdisciplinary institute was introduced this fall and is meant to build on the university’s programs in media production, research, design, the arts, music management and digital publishing. The school says it aims to prepare students for careers that transcend traditional degree programs.

A $22.8 million gift from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation will be used to help fund the renovation of a three-story building at the corner of Edgewood Avenue and Park Place, as well as improvements to the surrounding area.
