LA Study Away is now in Hollywood!
The LA Study Away Program is now operating out of the historic Raleigh Studios. By relocating our entire program to a working Hollywood studio, students experience first-hand the mechanics of the film industry in action: sound stages, backlots, executive offices, and the like. This new environment better prepares students for building their careers within the entertainment industry. Classes and guest speaker events are held in state-of-the-art screening facilities, and our new location allows us to expand our curriculum to include studio based production classes.
The Los Angeles Study Away Program provides students with direct learning insights and professional work experiences in the media and entertainment industries. This program exposes students to what the experience of living and working professionally in Los Angeles might be like. Internship opportunities span a broad spectrum including film, television, advertising, public relations, and entertainment management. Coursework includes Entertainment Industry Perspectives, a guest-lecture series frequently visited by recent Academy Award winner William Goldenberg.
