International Programs

» Cinematic storytelling with a global perspective

The international programs at Dodge College are designed to provide you with a truly global perspective and experience and encourage you to think of cinematic storytelling in a different way. Film is a global language and these opportunities enable you to enhance your storytelling capabilities while equipping you with a fresh perspective on political, economic and social issues affecting our international communities.

In recent years students have traveled to more than six continents and 20 countries including:

  • Asia: India, Japan, Laos, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan
  • Europe: England, France, Iceland, Italy
  • Africa: Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ghana, Mozambique, Uganda, Tanzania
  • South America: Peru
  • Australia, New Zealand and Cuba, as well as several cities in North America

This past academic year, Dodge College students traveled abroad to 10 countries, including Laos, Malawi, Ireland, and South Korea. Dodge College was able to subsidize nearly $150,000 of those travel courses, made possible by the generosity of our supporters.

We partner with affiliates all over the world to share our knowledge and contribute to a global filmmaking community by participating in cross-cultural filmmaking exchanges with universities including the Seoul Institute of the Arts and Dongseo University in Korea, and the Graduate Institute of Filmmaking of Taipei National University of the Arts in Taiwan.

Additionally, Chapman is one of 16 U.S. colleges and universities elected to membership in the Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision (CILECT), the preeminent international body of film schools.
