Every year, The Hollywood Reporter releases their list of the top 25 film schools in America, and for the last few years, Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts has been lucky to make that list.
This year, we continue our standing as Number 7 on the list, for the third year in a row! The list is highly competitive, and we are honored to have been named among so many other great film schools.
This is what they had to say about us:
There’s a reason Ted Sarandos, Steve Mosko, AMC’s Ed Carroll and even Hugh Hefner have sent their children to this school — and it’s not only because the Orange County campus is close to home. Chapman’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts is equipped with a $42 million, 76,000-square-foot facility designed by Bastien and Associates, the same firm that has built soundstages for Paramount, DreamWorks, Universal and Warner Bros. Say Matt and Ross Duffer (’07), who recently hit it big with the Netflix horror series Stranger Things: “The kids are smart and passionate. And it’s not too pretentious — our senior thesis was about a shape-shifting cannibal, and the students and faculty loved it.”
