The Syracuse University Los Angeles Semester (SULA) is an immersive professional development program that provides students with a unique opportunity to work as interns at a Los Angeles media company while taking entertainment industry-related academic courses taught by professionals.
Dwight Caines ’87, president of domestic marketing for Universal Pictures, has come in as a guest speaker for the Syracuse University Los Angeles (SULA) semester in the past, but when he called me to say he was interested in teaching a class, I was thrilled to have him join the SULA faculty. Caines taught Marketing for Film and Television for the first time in the fall of 2021. The class is important even for students who may not be interested in working directly in marketing, because no matter what they intend to do, they will eventually need to work with a marketing department.
