As a student in the School of Fine Arts and Communication, you’ll have access to countless learning opportunities that help take your education outside of your classroom walls. Between our close proximity to Los Angeles, numerous student groups (like our music ensembles and student-run media organizations), and access to top-notch facilities and classrooms, you’ll have no trouble finding ways to put your education into practice.
Proximity to Los Angeles
Los Angeles is a major hub for music, art, entertainment and media, which makes Biola University’s location particularly ideal. Our La Mirada campus is situated just a short drive away from L.A., making amazing internship and job opportunities incredibly accessible.
Classrooms and Facilities
Our newly renovated Bardwell Hall is Biola’s new home for the Department of Art. This new building — along with facilities such as the production center, convergent newsroom, and the Earl and Virginia Green Art Gallery — provide space for students to produce meaningful, creative work.
Student-Run Organizations and Media
Biola is home to several student-run media groups and organizations. Journalism students are heavily involved in the production of our award-winning campus newspaper, The Chimes, in addition to The Point magazine, EagleVision broadcast news and our radio broadcast, The Torch. Public relations students can also get involved with Biola’s chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) or our student-run PR agency, 6th Street Public Relations.
The Conservatory of Music facilitates a variety of student music groups and ensembles, including worship band, symphony orchestra, opera and so much more. Some groups are even open to non-music majors, which gives you a chance to explore your musical talents with other students at Biola.
