Our Approach: InterdisciplinaryAt the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television we celebrate the idea that stories can be told in an infinite number of ways, from the radically ancient to the radically modern. As a result, our approach to the art of storytelling is completely interdisciplinary — and completely unique. We are a place where there are no silos, boundaries or barriers between theater, film, television, digital media and cutting-edge research. In fact, we are the only place in the world where these disciplines are all integrated within a single professional school. There are no categories separating creativity and we use every tool, medium and platform to create and deliver our stories, to do our research, and to bring meaning to the world around us. We are a place where our students are prepared to be pioneers, leaders and game changers of tomorrow.
