Critic Courses

Critics thrive on the latest trends in food, fashion, literature, film, fashion, music, TV, and popular culture. They critique and review movies, television and streaming programs, restaurants, popular music albums, books, and much much more.

As a Critic you could be attending the premiere of a film from a popular movie franchise, listening to a come-back album from a once-popular country music band, taking notes while watching a TV series to include in an upcoming review, pitching a magazine with several book reviews you have recently written, posting photos of you at a music festival to your instagram, proofreading and editing a blog post, or mingling with film industry executives and actors at an awards after-party.

To succeed in this occupation you will need to be an excellent writer, have a well-developed sense of fashion and personal style, and the confidence to express your opinions in the public arena.
