Both an upper division undergraduate course and a series of public conversations open to the broader community, the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture's "10 Questions” series invites the public to join UCLA students in the virtual classroom to engage in vibrant conversation alongside leading faculty and distinguished alumni from across the university.
