    BestSemester proudly offers several off-campus and study abroad programs around the world through the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU). The CCCU is a higher education association of 179 intentionally Christ-centered institutions around the world.

    Founded in 1991, the Los Angeles Film Studies Center (LAFSC) trains students to serve in various aspects of the film industry with professional skill and Christian integrity.

    What Will I Study?

    Each semester, students live, learn and work in L.A. The curriculum consists of three required seminars: "Hollywood Production Workshop" (a film production course), and "Faith and Artistic Development in Film," which focuses on the role of film in culture and the relationship of faith to work in this very influential industry.

    In addition, students choose one elective course from a variety of offerings in film studies. Internships in various segments of the film industry provide students with hands-on experience. The combination of the internship and seminars allows students to explore the film industry within a Christian context and from a liberal arts perspective.
