YouTube is partnering with universities to launch a new media program series for aspiring digital filmmakers.
The video-sharing website announced Thursday it would launch the YouTube Creator Institute with the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts and Columbia College Chicago. It says the schools will offer on-campus and online educational courses to its users so they can "hone their digital media skills and accelerate their YouTube careers."
Course work will range from cinematography to social media strategy.
Classes begin in May. Inaugural classes at USC and CCC will have 10 students each. Applicants must be U.S. citizens at least 18 years old.
YouTube is owned by Mountain View, Calif.-based Internet search leader Google Inc.
