Being a Media Production major at Pepperdine is awesome because it allows you to really get hands-on experiences outside of the classroom along with learning the technical skills and facts inside the classroom. The workload is not too heavy if you know how to plan your assignments and projects with ample time. The facilities are relatively new (as they were built within the last 10 years), and the internship opportunities that flourish from our students are impeccable. Students have interned at places like NBC, E! News, Disney, etc.

The School! Pepperdine has one of the most beautiful and well kept college campuses that i have ever seen. With an annual budget in the hundreds of millions, and only 3000 undergraduates, Pepperdine has the resources to ensure that each and every student has access to an amazing athletics center, beautiful cafeteria, and dorms with comfortable living areas and large plasma screen TV's in all of the common rooms. The campus classrooms are always immaculate, and i see campus maintenance workers planting flowers, gardening, or just cleaning up around campus on a DAILY basis. Pepperdine invests a lot in its image and the quality of its facilities, it really shows!

Studying Abroad – The studying abroad program here at Pepperdine is almost like a rite of passage. They are Top 10 in the nation beating out many of the Ivy League schools. There are Pepperdine Universities in each of the countries that you want to study abroad in and the friendships, internship/volunteer opportunities, learning a new language, learning to survive and manage in a new country are all just some of the pluses to studying abroad. Pepperdine even has one week study abroad programs for those who can't afford to go for a full year or semester. These are volunteer abroad programs that take place over spring break. Pepperdine's study abroad program is THE BEST!
