UCLA Spotlight

UCLA in 3 minutes, 46 seconds

Welcome to UCLA

Produced by UCLA Communications and Public Outreach, the video is available for viewing and embedding on UCLA's YouTube channel.

For UCLA "by the numbers," see the UCLA Profile maintained by the Office of Analysis and Information Management.

UCLA is big, and that size is part of its essence — allowing for unimagined diversity, unmatched breadth and depth of scholarship, and limitless possibility:

» 25,000 undergraduates and 12,000 graduate students

» More than 5,000 courses offered each year, taught by a world class faculty who go well beyond dispensing knowledge; they create it

» 31 departments ranked among the top 20 in their field; 13 among the top ten

» An astonishing concentration of performing arts, museums and galleries, films, exhibitions, lectures, and athletic events open to the entire community

A lot to cover in 3 minutes, 46 seconds. See how we do.

Update: The sharp-eyed viewer may notice that the video is actually 3 minutes, 32 seconds long. That's because we had to excise some outdated material in September 2010.
