Designed with a cross-disciplinary approach that incorporates art, technology, and business, the UCLA Extension Immersive Media Program investigates new frontiers and applications in Immersive Media. 

How do designers create compelling solutions and experiences in Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), collectively called XR?

The Immersive Media Program can provide you with hands-on training and real-world case studies around experience building, world building, and the business of XR. Students will use Unity, 3D modeling and basic coding while creating front-end experiences and industry-focused portfolios showcasing what is possible in XR.
