University of California, Los Angeles
For nearly 100 years, UCLA has been a pioneer, persevering through impossibility, turning the futile into the attainable. Diverse, progressive and centered in one of the most influential cities in the world, UCLA is a truly international university that offers a world of opportunity. Consistently ranked among the world's top-tier universities and powered by extensive resources, a renowned reputation and — most important — the will to make a real difference in the world, the result is clearly in the numbers.
With more than 3,800 courses in 109 academic departments, UCLA offers 125 plus majors to help students define their academic path. And 70 percent of the university’s undergraduate classes have 30 or fewer students, maximizing student’s personal engagement with its internationally renowned faculty. The faculty includes Nobel Prize winners, Fulbright Scholars and a Fields Medal recipient. Classes are stimulating. Coursework is challenging.
UCLA's graduate programs have a reputation for producing professionals, researchers and leaders who have a major impact on the world. With 40 programs ranked among the best in the nation, UCLA gives today's graduate students the resources and cutting-edge instruction they need to go out and leave their own indelible mark.
At UCLA, imagination flourishes at three of the most respected and acclaimed professional schools in the country: The School of the Arts and Architecture, The Herb Alpert School of Music and The School of Theater, Film and Television. Here, students learn from masters in their fields, network with a host of famous alumni, build relationships with working professionals, and benefit from the breadth and depth of resources and experiences that only a world-class university in the arts and entertainment capital of the world can offer.
The campus is perpetually in motion. Students start and join 1000 plus clubs, kick-start businesses, run organizations and are deeply involved with the community. The fans fill the stands for some of the most storied teams in NCAA history. And the entire student body attends events like Bruin Bash — the annual festival to kick off the new school year, which has featured top performers like Jay-Z, T.I. and LMFAO. It's just the opening act of an unforgettable UCLA experience.
Los Angeles is a global city where culture, business and industry blend into opportunity. This is where 4 million people power the world's 15th largest economy.
