About Chapman

» Visit Chapman

The Chapman University campus in Orange, California is a point of pride for the institution. We're here for real experience, so our students are given access to award-winning faculty and state-of-the-art facilities.

Our film students aren't just given cameras on day one—they're given access to seven soundstages and a Foley theater. Our business students are given access to 12 Bloomberg terminals for up to the minute financial data. Our law students gain real world experience in two on-campus courtrooms.

Like our curriculum, which connects different disciplines, our campus aims to bring our students, faculty and larger community together. Because in a place where anything can happen—it often does.
