About Columbia College Hollywood Mission

Columbia College Hollywood educates students in the art and science of communications and the diverse media of contemporary storytelling within an exploration of the liberal arts. Our rigorous course of study and practice prepares graduates to be analytical thinkers and effective communicators who are creative, knowledgeable, and responsible contributors to advancing a curious, thoughtful, and compassionate global community.

Columbia College Hollywood is committed to fostering a learning community that promotes creativity, innovation, and growth through education, collaboration, and a common love of the entertainment arts. We inspire communication, collaboration, and personal growth.

Columbia College Hollywood was originally established in the 1952 in the MacArthur Park neighborhood of Los Angeles as a branch campus of Columbia College in Chicago. The curriculum was designed to focus on the burgeoning television and radio industries and featured a faculty made up of working television and radio professionals. In 1959, Columbia College Hollywood separated from the Chicago institution to operate as an independent, private, nonprofit college.

During the 1960s, as the entertainment industry grew and changed, the college established a cinema department with a dual focus on film and television. To serve its expanding curricula and student population, the college moved to a new campus on Las Palmas Avenue in Hollywood in 1970. In 1997, Columbia College Hollywood established its current campus in the historic, former world headquarters of Panavision, a foremost designer and manufacturer of cameras and lenses for the film and television industries. The college is now located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley, providing access to major film and television studios in Los Angeles.

In 2018, Columbia College Hollywood merged with Tribeca Flashpoint College in Chicago, Illinois. As a result, a wider range of programs and services are available to students at both locations and online. The campus in Illinois is now known as Flashpoint Chicago, a campus of Columbia College Hollywood.
