Not only is the college on a working studio lot, surrounded by professional productions, but the faculty and program chairs are also experienced, working professionals.  It's not uncommon to see your teacher in class one day, and on a television show the next.

We are shaping the entertainment professionals of tomorrow by fostering an educational experience rooted in collaboration and innovation. Our programs inspire excellence in a project-oriented learning environment designed to unleash the imagination and bring creative ideas to fruition under the mentorship of industry professionals. At the crossroads of art and commerce, train our students to think like entrepreneurs. We challenge them to embrace the ever-changing technological landscape that shapes the future of entertainment. We ask them to think critically, solve problems, and deliver their ideas to the world with integrity using available social and digital platforms. We rejoice in freedom of thought while nurturing the confidence required in expressing it.

Welcome to Hussian College, the first school of its kind created with a motion picture studio; developed with Hollywood executives, directors, screenwriters, agents, casting directors, producers, actors, dancers, and other professionals focused on the art and business of storytelling in the twenty-first century.

It’s a thrilling time to pursue a career in media and entertainment because the future of content distribution is a wide-open playing field. Even the biggest industry players of past decades are carefully navigating their future in the digital era, relying on young talent to lead the way. The playbook for success has changed in entertainment and we want our students trained to win. Virtual reality, augmented reality, live streaming, mobile devices, and social media platforms are revolutionizing content consumption. Hussian College students are trained to embrace this and be brave entrepreneurs, develop relevant skills, tell cogent stories, and create stunning original content in the face of this opportunity.
