The comprehensive arts curriculum at UCLA TFT gives motivated students the means to challenge the constructs around them as multifaceted artists and scholars, filled with the knowledge, insight and point of view to create meaningful experiences pointing toward a better world.

The Department of Film, Television and Digital Media at UCLA TFT offers undergraduate and graduate studies in animation, directing, cinematography, documentary filmmaking, producing, screenwriting, and cinema & media, and the history and theory of moving images. The department provides professional and scholarly approaches to the study of media and teaches students to discover their powers as independent artists and communicators.

The Department of Theater's undergraduate programs offers the critical study of theater as a global phenomenon, along with practice in acting, writing, directing, design, and outreach education in the context of a professional school.  Also offered are M.F.A. programs with specializations in directing, playwriting, and theater and entertainment design (scenic, costume, and lighting designs); and a Ph.D. in theater and performance studies.
