Cinema & Digital Arts


Training the next generation of artists

TMU’s Cinema and Digital Arts (CDA) program equips students with the tools needed to compete in the evolving world of mass media. Our program is unique in that it teams students with industry professionals, giving them the opportunity to create productions on par with the entertainment industry. We are also distinct in our philosophy, training the next generation of artists to recognize God as the ultimate creative force and to reflect this knowledge in what (and how) they create.

Our course offerings provide a conceptual framework for CDA alongside practical experience in the field. The program has created award-winning film productions that have received industry notoriety and been distributed on platforms like UPtv. Our location in Southern California allows us access to industry professionals in various arenas of media, securing noted guest speakers and prime internships. As a result of all this, our students graduate with knowledge of both the theoretical and practical aspects of the field, and they are credited on quality productions that can be used on resumes and production reels.
