The Mission and Vision

The Mission of the Academy is to provide students majoring in media arts with pathways to further education opportunities, increase practical experiences, and provide the communities of the Inland Empire with support for further economic development.  

The Inland Empire Media Academy will provide students of the SBCCD with opportunities for integrated practical experience and serve as an exemplary platform for students’ media art. 


The Inland Empire Media Academy (IEMA) is affiliated with San Bernardino Valley College’s Radio, TV, Film (RTVF) Program. IEMA allows for students to partake in guided pathways curriculum throughout the division of Arts and Humanities. The IEMA offers dynamic constantly-evolving methods of education, promotion and advocacy. The IEMA partners with our local high schools to jump start those students' career pathways into media arts. Through our effort’s students involved in the Media Academy 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.
