Columbia College Hollywood is dedicated to providing its students with an inclusive educational opportunity in film, television, new media and the digital arts within the context of an enriching liberal arts environment. The College provides a challenging academic experience encouraged by an accomplished faculty and dedicated staff as well as advanced technology that combine to prepare its graduates to make immediate and significant contributions to the entertainment industry and community at large.
For 60 years, CCH has been educating students in the art and craft of the entertainment industry. In the early days, Columbia’s primary focus was on television and radio broadcasting. Later in the 1960’s a great deal of television began to be produced on film. So CCH, always responsive to the industry it serves, established a Cinema department. In the decades that followed, film and television became Columbia’s dual focus, with an increasing emphasis on film. CCH takes pride in the unique combination of hands-on training, industry-based faculty, and the liberal arts education it offers.
As can been seen from our history, the College continues to evolve in response to the changing demands of its students and of the entertainment industry the world over.
