A diverse, interdisciplinary film experience
Who Are We?
The University of Southern California is one of the world’s leading private research universities. An anchor institution in Los Angeles, a global center for arts, technology and international business, USC’s diverse curricular offerings provide extensive opportunities for interdisciplinary study and collaboration with leading researchers in highly advanced learning environments.
An experience like none other
As the only media school in the world that teaches all the major disciplines of the Cinematic Arts, SCA offers a uniquely interdisciplinary learning experience. Our students take classes across seven divisions that cover the breadth of film, television, and interactive media. They are exposed to the latest technological advances and storytelling techniques of the industry and have opportunities to meet and network with some of its most successful practitioners.
A Diverse Learning Experience
In addition to superb faculty and resources, the greatest strength to our programs is the underlying philosophy that the best education comes from creating an environment where theory and practice are in constant interaction. To this end, we have structured each field of study so that all students, regardless of their specific major, are required to take courses from the full spectrum of the School’s offerings.
