Whittier College’s Media Center, located on the second floor of Platner Hall, provides Film Studies minors with a wide range of audio-visual services and an extensive software library of audio tapes, video tapes, and films. Photography, sound, and synchronized slide programs also can be readily produced within the center's facilities.

Along with a darkroom and audio booth, the Media Center also houses a color television studio and sophisticated editing bay, providing faculty and students with the opportunity to produce diverse programming, such as individual video projects and local documentaries.
