Summer Program

The Elon in Los Angeles summer program is a nine-week opportunity for students to live, learn and intern in the entertainment capital of world. In the summer of 2013, the program will run from June 1 to Aug. 3.


The program is open to all majors.  Students earn six hours of credit (two hours of internship and four hours chosen from Entertainment Production, Entertainment Marketing/PR, Acting, and Dance ) while onsite in Hollywood.

While students spend their summers taking the class that most interests them, they all work together during their nine weeks on the larger, end-of-summer project—the five short films that will eventually be screened at the American Film Institute. The films are produced and directed by students in the production class and star students in the acting class. The PR students, then, put together press kits containing plot synopses, cast lists and production bios to circulate to attendees, and develop a social media strategy for the individual films.

Students participating in Elon in LA have regularly scheduled activities, such as film screenings, behind the scenes tours of productions in progress and mentoring interactions with our alumni working and living in Los Angeles.

Cost for 2014 is estimated at $7500 which includes tuition for 6 credit hours, housing, and program fees.  Not included are transportation and food.

“If I just come out here by myself, I don’t think I’d get the opportunity to get feedback and work with all kinds of different people. Being out here gives us an excuse to work together. But at the same time, it’s also a competition. It’s a weird mix of working together but also that push you get from seeing everyone else work and saying, ‘I want to be good, too.’” – Asha Wilson ’13, Media Arts & Entertainment majorand intern at Martin Chase Productions in Los Angeles in the summer of 2011
