Some of the most impactful classes I’ve taken in the IES program are “First and Second Language Acquisition”, “Creative Drama for Child/Youth”, and “Foundations of Education”. These courses have prepared me to create an extraordinary classroom environment that promotes student success through memorable and fun ways of learning.

The Multimedia department offers a variety of unique courses, like Maxon Cinema 4D and Typography, that help us build skills in a wide range of fields such as film, graphic design, and animation. This grants me more opportunities to find a job. In addition, Cal Lutheran’s small class sizes ensure that I get all the help and feedback I need from my professors to succeed.
