The School of Theater, Film, and Television consists of the Department of Theater and the Department of Film, Television, and Digital Media, recognized national centers for higher education in production and performance as well as history, theory, and criticism.

Whether exploring the ancient and sacred roots of theater or the latest secular rituals enacted by popular film, creating a dramatic character for the bare stage or a dramatic narrative on screen, writing scripts or scholarly articles, or making digital movies or designing websites, all students in the school study both the aesthetics and cultural significance of theater, film, and television.

Through an intensive, multidiscipline curriculum, the school defines the inherent differences of theater, film, television, and new media, affirms their similarities, and encourages their interaction. As expressive art forms, modes of communication, and cultural interventions, theater, film and television, and digital media have in common the ability and power to reflect and shape our perception of a complex, diverse, and ever-changing world. We believe—as artists and scholars—that we have an obligation to reflect on this power and to use it responsibly.

Situated in the diverse and culturally rich environment of Los Angeles and drawing on the many resources of the campus at large, including the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA, Geffen Playhouse, and UCLA Film and Television Archive, the school provides the ideal setting for students to engage in the study and practice of art forms essential to a healthy and dynamic society.
