Aaron Greer joined the new School of Communication and the Communication Studies program as Assistant Professor in Digital Cinema and Media Production in Fall 2008. Promoted to Associate Professor in 2011, Greer was named program director for Film and Digital Media Studies Program in 2012.

As a filmmaker Greer has developed a diverse professional portfolio, from feature-films, to documentaries, to experimental and web-shorts.

Greer is currently producing a web-series called Gettin' Grown TV, which plays into pre-teen boys' love of the internet by including viewer generated content and giving users the ability to re-edit parts of the show.
