"As we are undergoing a comprehensive curriculum review, we will not be accepting applications for Fall 2021. The department plans to resume Graduate Production/Directing admissions for students entering in Fall 2022."
That's crazy. I wonder if it's due to COVID.
Lol, everyone is making a lot of assumptions about the school being responsible. They could go online.which means UCLA is a responsible school.
LOL. You must work for the school or you are in PR for the school. That's a HEFTY spin on the situation.While Covid isn't the original cause, it most likely had an effect on the decision. Every so often, the university conducts comprehensive reviews of its schools, carried out by neutral third parties (without ties to the school). Basically, last year's internal review recommended a bunch of structural changes, many of which are on the administrative and organizational level. Some of these issues were not new (for example, we've had acting interim department chairs and deans instead of permanent ones).
I think between that, budget cuts, and the pandemic, the school thought it was as good a time as ever to take a pause and devote the time they would've spent on culling a new graduating class to working out these issues instead. In theory, this is a good thing. Fingers crossed that it only leads to an even better UCLA in the future
