Columbia College Hollywood is a private, nonprofit film school established in 1952 in Los Angeles. It grants a four-year baccalaureate degree and is accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission[3] and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).

The college's cinematic arts programs offer bachelor of fine arts and associate of fine arts degrees in film and television production covering screenwriting, producing, directing, cinematography, sound recording, editing, digital arts, special effects and interactive media.
