OVERVIEW

Interships provide students with an opportunity to gain field experience at established companies and organizations in the entertainment industry, whether theater, film or television. The Department of Theater and the Department of Film, Television and Digital Media both support internship opportunities outside of UCLA TFT.


THEATER

The Department of Theater Internship Program is open to enrolled undergraduate and graduate students from the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television as well as other currently enrolled UCLA students. Students are required to contact and secure their own internships. The Department of Theater and the internship coordinator do not provide guidance in selecting internships. In conjunction with an internship, eligible students are required to enroll in a Theater course to receive college credit.
