Entertainment Arts

We put stories — and careers — in motion.

Storytelling is at the heart of what artists do. The mediums may differ, but whether you’re venturing into animation, concept design, digital film or video games, it takes the best to help you become the best.

Entertainment Arts at CCS prepares you to join the next generation of storytellers with Hollywood insiders who show you how to master the latest software and equipment used in the entertainment industry.

All of the Entertainment Arts emphases are currently STEM-designated programs. International students completing this program qualify to apply for the STEM OPT (optional practical training) Extension.
