University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) (School of Theater, Film and Television)

The UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (TFT) is the only university in the country where the study of theater, film, television and digital media is integrated within a single professional school.

Located in Los Angeles -- the entertainment capital of the world -- TFT draws on industry leaders for its faculty, advisors and mentors.

TFT's talented alumni have won Oscars, Emmys, Tonys and nearly every other meaningful artistic accolade in the performing and visual arts.

TFT's undergraduate theater and film/television programs are ranked first out of 500 programs nationally (Princeton Review/Gourman Report) and the graduate theater and graduate film/television programs are consistently among the top three nationally (US News and World Report).

UCLA's Department of Film, Television, and Digital Media offers programs of study in the history and theory as well as the creative and technical aspects of the moving image. The department provides a scholarly, creative, and professional approach to the study of these media and seeks to help each student discover his or her powers as an independent artist and communicator.

Attract a broad diversity of students and faculty who reflect the multi-cultural nature of American society. A commitment to cultural diversity is not a choice, but a necessity in a school teaching popular forms that pervade American society. In particular, due to the school's location in California, there is a clear mission in developing Latino theater, film and television.

Combine theory and practice. While students are directing, acting, writing, producing and designing, they are also learning history, criticism and theory in every program and every major, including the PhD. Students of criticism gain hands-on creative experience and media artists acquire fine-tuned critical awareness.

Build bridges between UCLA and the community. This objective is pursued in many ways: through the public programming of the Archive, the Geffen Playhouse, and the Theater Department; and through a wide range of community outreach initiatives, public service programs and copious interactions with the media industry and the creative community.
