Westphal in Los Angeles

June 5, 2014

This summer will mark the third installment of the “Westphal in LA” program where students descend upon Hollywood to work at internships with leading companies in the television, film and entertainment industries, while taking credits in their majors towards their degree.

44 students are enrolled in Westphal in Los Angeles 2014, with 32 students from Cinema & TV and 12 from Music Industry. The companies they’ll intern with include Brave New Films, Image Movers, Principato-Young Entertainment, Fremantle Media, Little Pond Television, Super 78, MGM-HD, Studio System News, Aero Films and others. The students will live and take classes in a luxury apartment complex in downtown Los Angeles.

Working and studying in LA for the summer gives students hands-on experiences and the beginnings of a network of relationships in an industry-town where many Westphal alumni build careers after graduation. Additionally, a number of students stay on in Los Angeles for several months while working at their co-ops. For more information about the program, please contact Karin Kelly at or Ian Abrams at
