The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting fosters the growth of the whole person through
a sequence of courses that develop a solid foundation of acting skills. The program
is for students who are seeking rigorous preparation for graduate study or for entry-level
opportunities in the acting profession. An audition/interview is required for entry
into the acting program.
Professional training includes courses in acting, voice, movement, and scene study.
Students also have the opportunity to study other areas of theatre such as playwriting,
dramaturgy and directing. Lighting, sound, scenic and costume design, and technical
direction round out the program's theatre training. Acting majors apply their developing skills through public performances in fully-produced
plays, student projects, new plays in development, and devised works.
