Benefits of the UCLA Extension Entertainment Studies Program:

Located at the epicenter of the entertainment industry, the Entertainment Studies program at UCLA Extension provides dynamic professional training in the art and business of entertainment.

In addition to the deep industry experience of our instructors, UCLA Extension has the ability to respond quickly to changes in technology and the marketplace to keep students on the crest of what’s current.

Why Get a Specialization?

The Entertainment Studies Program also offers several Specializations that are made up of three or four courses designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in a specific area. Specializations carry many of the same benefits as certificates, are open admission, and only require a modest application/candidacy fee. Specializations are designed to accommodate the schedules of busy adults with the option to take courses online, onsite or as a hybrid. You can complete a specialization in as little as one or two quarters!
