Degree/s Offered

In October 2014, Hussian College opened a Los Angeles, California branch campus (formerly known as Studio School) with programs in art, acting, film, commercial dance, musical theatre, and entrepreneurship.

Our programs inspire excellence in a project-oriented learning environment designed to unleash the imagination and bring creative ideas to fruition under the mentorship of industry professionals.
