Step into the world of Digital Hollywood University (DHU), where cutting-edge education meets limitless creativity. Established in 2005, DHU has emerged as a trailblazer in the realm of digital education.
Through its pioneering curriculum, state-of-the-art facilities, and invaluable industry connections, DHU has set the standard for aspiring professionals in the digital entertainment and media industry.
“We teach students computer animation, Japanese animation, web designing, programming, filmmaking, visual effects, IT entrepreneurship. Most of our instructors come from the industry. Ninety of them are part-time and they bring the most updated knowledge and techniques to our students,” Head of the International Office Yoshimi Tamiya said.
DHU offers a diverse array of programs and courses that include game design, animation, filmmaking, virtual reality, and digital marketing. Emphasizing a hands-on approach, the university gives its students abundant opportunities to cultivate practical skills and gain industry experience.
Its faculty comprises industry professionals who blend real-world expertise with classroom instruction, providing students with relevant and up-to-date knowledge alongside real-world experiences.
“What makes us unique is the fact that we don't have any major system during the four years they spend in the university. The students don’t need to choose their major and they can study whatever they are interested in. For the first two years, they can explore their interests and after, hopefully know what to pursue so they can deepen their knowledge and techniques,” Tamiya said.
DHU doesn’t limit its education locally. It recognizes the benefits of looking beyond borders.
“We offer a study abroad program for second year students for either one or two semesters as a part of the university program,” Tamiya said, adding students will profit professionally when they broaden their horizons and gain cross-cultural experiences.
