See Yourself Here

Come be with us. Feel the weight of a camera in your hands. Hear the outside world fall away in the muffled confines of an edit lab. Envision yourself here as one of us: telling your stories, honing your craft, exploring your calling — supporting and supported by a community of like-minded believers.

What to Expect

The Cinema and Media Arts tour is offered in addition to the Biola Undergraduate Campus tour, and gives you the opportunity to:

  • Explore our facilities, sound stages and edit labs/suites
  • Get hands-on and check out cameras, mics, lenses, lighting, you name it. If it’s on a professional film set, you’ll probably find it in our Equipment Room.
  • Watch a recent student film
  • Meet one-on-one with our faculty experts or our dean
  • Get an inside perspective from a current film or game design student
  • Meet with a counselor to get your questions answered
  • And more!
