Los Angeles is one of the world's leading centers for the creative industries, including film and television, music, and emerging media. NYU's program provides an experiential learning environment for students to prepare for careers in the entertainment and media industries, including NYU courses from multiple schools, industry internships, and a range of opportunities to build relationships and connections in LA's artistic and business communities.

This program is a new type of study away opportunity crafted by faculty from Abu Dhabi, Gallatin, Steinhardt, Stern, and Tisch. Designed for upper-level undergraduate students planning to make careers in the entertainment and media industries, the program combines highly focused academic programming — with such courses as Business Structure of the Music Industry, Movie Marketing, and Script Analysis — with a substantial professional development component.
