Our Alumni Span the Globe and All Aspects of the Field

We've been teaching film and photography since the 1960s, and we have more than 13,000 alumni in the communications industry around the world—many in Los Angeles and New York.  Our alumni are screenwriters, studio execs, directors, editors for photography magazines, DPs, independent artists, post-production and special effects specialists, media educators, gallery and museum professionals, location scouts, producers, agents, and more.

Our students get great jobs and "gigs" right out of college.
