There’s no replacement for hands on experience.

Internships 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.

Film, Television and Digital Media Internships

The UCLA TFT Film & TV Internship Program is open to enrolled juniors, seniors and graduate students. In conjunction with an internship, eligible students are required to enroll in a FTVDM course to receive college credit.

Theater Internships

Theater internships offer undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on work experience in a variety of professional settings. At TFT, students find and secure their own internships and enroll in a Theater course to receive college credit for their efforts.
