Long Beach City College promotes equitable student learning and achievement, academic excellence, and workforce development by delivering high quality educational programs and support services to our diverse communities.
The Visual and Media Arts Department at Long Beach City College is made up of the Art, Film and Radio & Television programs. Our mission is to provide students instruction across our disciplines whether beginning, advanced or professional. Our curriculum scales from a single class, general education courses, or a course of study leading to transfer, Associate Degree or vocational certificate. Students can pursue their individual interests in the visual and media arts through an array of foundation courses establishing a technical and critical understanding of visual and media language. These courses lead to improved personal creative expression or to specialized multidisciplinary instruction within the creative and applied arts through the production, analysis, and exhibition of visual and media works.
