Big Student Body
UCLA offers 127 majors and 3,600 undergraduate courses taught by 4,000 faculty. On top of that, there are over 800 student organizations on campus. That’s major.
UCLA students take their responsibility to the world seriously, and the university lets students participate in service activities by combining volunteer opportunities with the academic curriculum. In the 2010-2011 school year, 28,000 UCLA students participated in some form of community service.
With more than 1,000 arts events offered on campus annually, UCLA is a great place to study the arts. On any given night students can see a production by a professional or student company, check out a screening or gallery opening at the Hammer Museum, or get your art smarts on at a CultureFix talk at the Fowler museum.
Political science is one of the most popular majors at UCLA. Students can elect to spend a quarter in Washington D.C. carrying out their own self-directed research project. Or, if they’d rather get hands-on experience, students can intern for credit in one of D.C.’s many government agencies, think tanks, NGOs, non-profits, media outlets, advocacy, trade, or business organizations.
