Semester in L.A (SiLA) is an opportunity for Columbia College Chicago students to experience the business of Hollywood first hand on a studio lot with industry professionals. It is normally a five-week immersion program in which the student maintains full-time status through an intensive educational experience. The program is multi-disciplinary and includes classes from the School of Media Arts and the School of Fine and Performing Arts.
Seventy-five percent of students wind up getting their first job in the industry through this program, that’s worth its weight in gold. The first break is one of the hardest things to get.
The Semester in LA Program is looking for energetic, hard working, bright and resourceful students who have a desire to learn from industry professionals. If you are interested in speaking with one of our staff, please see our contact page or attend an information session.
