Located in west Los Angeles just south of Bel Air, UCLA is a large campus with a wide array of degree programs and a student body of nearly 40,000 students. Among its many programs, UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television is world-renowned, consistently listed as one of the finest in the world. Besides its theater programs and a general Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film, Television and Digital Media, the school is perhaps best known for its selection of graduate programs–including master’s programs in Production/Directing, Producing, Animation, and Cinematography, and even a PhD in Cinema Studies. UCLA lists some of the world’s most famous producers and directors among its alumni, including Rob Reiner, Francis Ford Coppola, Frank Marshall and Gore Verbinski.
As a full traditional university and a state-owned school, UCLA’s Bachelor’s programs take about four years to complete, and discounted tuition is offered to residents of California. Undergraduate residents can expect to pay a minimum of $13,500 per semester (tuition and fees), and graduate students pay upwards of $22,000 per semester. Non-resident tuition can be as high as $35,000 per semester.
