From Day 1, you’ll be encouraged to find your own voice as you develop your expertise and expand your understanding of storytelling in both mainstream Hollywood feature films and television as well as in the corporate and non-profit arenas through advertising and public relations.

You’ll be mentored by a faculty of real-world professionals who know how things are done from personal experience and are eager to “show you the ropes.”

Follow your dreams by undertaking a hands-on education. Learn how the film industry works --the “business of the business” -- from script to screen. Discover the world of corporate PR or life in an advertising agency. Create virtual characters for video games or special effects for feature films. No matter which path you follow, at the end of your four years here, you’ll be in a position to impress the powers that be in your chosen specialty.

What's the vibe at Dodge competitiveness-wise? USC SCA is known to be pretty cutthroat competitive where as LMU SFTV actually markets itself as not being so competitive but more of a collaborative environment. Wondering where Chapman/Dodge falls in the mix?
