The Costume Survey

Description provided by the program

We combine professional training with costume design as a fine art to expose students to all areas of entertainment performance design: theater, musical theater, film and television, opera, themed entertainment and dance. UCI's close proximity to Los Angeles provides a vast choice of media, internships, on-site visits as well as career connections for the future. Our students have interned with Disneyland, the Mark Taper Forum, Western Costume Company, The South Coast Rep and many others.
