Columbia College-Hollywood says

Columbia College Hollywood is dedicated to the highest standard in educating film and television professionals. The mission of the College is twofold: to prepare artists with technical proficiency, and prepare technicians who are also artists. This is accomplished by offering academic and applied instruction in the theory and practice of motion picture, television, and emerging media production, with the goal of preparing men and women to be ready to make immediate and significant contributions to the entertainment industry.

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.
