The Institute of Media Arts (IMA) is affiliated with San Bernardino Valley College’s Film, TV, Media (FTVM) program. IMA allows for students to partake in guided pathways curriculum throughout the division of Arts and Humanities. The IMA offers dynamic constantly-evolving methods of education, promotion and advocacy. The IMA partners with our local high schools to jump start those students' career pathways into media arts. Through our effort’s students involved in the Institute can access internship opportunities with various media companies in the region, such as KVCR and FNX Network. These internships are designed to help our students develop professional level portfolios to support career development or further education at 4-year institutions. Because of our commitment to innovative curriculum, engaging practicum, and a hub for exposition the media academy is a destination training ground for our students.
