Description:The BFA in Acting is a professional actor training program supplemented by a solid grounding in the history of theatre, while also offering many of the benefits of a liberal arts education.

The beginning year of the BFA focuses on the development of the actor's instrument through scene study, improvisation, storytelling, movement and voice. The intermediate year includes the study of styles, heightened language, and individual artistic development through scene study and monologues. The final year includes screen acting, auditioning, voice and movement tutorials, creating solo pieces, singing, and stage combat.
