Summer Programs

Summer programs at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television are every bit as rigorous and rewarding as the classes taught during the regular sessions of the academic year. Held within the same classrooms, theaters, dance studios, soundstages, editing labs and television studios, summer classes are taught by our faculty, many of whom are working professionals in the theater, film and television industries. Courses are offered to current UCLA students, non-students, professionals and high school students for college credit.
