Howard University and Amazon Studios Bring Students to Hollywood

Howard University partnered with Amazon Studios to launch Howard Entertainment. This 2-semester program, held in Los Angeles, aims to “diversify the entertainment industry by creating a pipeline for African-American students and other marginalized populations to train and study alongside entertainment executives. The experience will offer students a unique interdisciplinary curriculum, coupled with hands-on work experiences and networking with Amazon’s industry partners. The program will begin in January 2020.”

To be considered for the program, Howard students must be upperclassmen or graduate students and complete an application and interview. The coursework will count toward graduation requirements.

For more information, read the press release.
