Los Angeles as a Learning Lab

For more than 100 years, Los Angeles has been the unrivaled entertainment capital of the world. And you needn’t look too far to find Syracuse University alumni in some of the entertainment industry’s most pivotal roles. Through the tremendous achievements of those alumni, SU has gained an international reputation for preparing students to excel in the field.

With the SULA Semester, SU is taking this strength to the next level—joining with our “community of experts” to offer students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn the business from the inside. Through SU’s bold approach to education, students will continue to take what they learn in the classroom and test their knowledge in real-world situations, igniting an exchange of ideas that benefits all.
