The UCLA Theater Internship Program is open to enrolled students from the Department of Theater. Only juniors, seniors and graduate students in the Theater Major or Minor are permitted to take this internship.
This course provides students with an opportunity to gain field experience in theater, film, television and entertainment organizations. Each student’s internship is a variable-time assignment in the profession. Examples of appropriate organizations are Actors Gang, Center Theater Group, Comedy Central, Creative Artist Agency, DreamWorks, FOX Studios, the Geffen Playhouse, LA Theatre Works, Miramax, MTV, Nickelodeon, and Sony Pictures Studio.
Students must select an organization and make direct contact with the internship coordinator at the organization to secure an internship. The Department of Theater maintains a list of organizations and contact information. Please stop by the office at 303 E. Melnitz Hall to peruse the binder. However, students are not limited to these organizations. Please note that Department of Theater staff and the Internship Coordinator do not provide guidance in selecting an internship.
Students receive internship credit by enrolling in Theater 195. Theater 195 is offered Fall, Winter and Spring quarters as well as in the Summer Session. Enrollment must be completed by the end of the second week of the quarter in which internship activity occurs. Please see “How to Enroll in Theater 195/498” for paperwork deadlines as well as for information on enrolling in the proper quarter.
