ONE-OF-A-KIND ACTOR TRAINING WITH OPPORTUNITIES TO TOUR NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY

Grow artistically and become a first-rate performer with the BA in Acting–International Performance Ensemble (IPE), a one-of-a-kind BA theater program in the U.S. that trains the student in the development of an ensemble theater company. This unique program trains students in the set-up of an international theater company and provides young actors and directors with the opportunity to work and tour nationally and internationally as part of exchange programs with companies and artists from all over the world. In 2014, second-year students travelled to the UK, Brazil, and Thailand.

The first three years of the BA in Acting are dedicated to developing and performing devised projects through collaborative creation of theatrical pieces under the mentorship of established American and international theater professionals. Through this process, students are trained in the technique of ensemble work incorporating devised performance, design, movement, and text. Senior year will concentrate on each student’s artistic goals in order to create a successful and fulfilling career.

The BA in Acting major also offers a strong liberal arts component that helps nurture well-rounded young artists whose goals are to enter the professional industry or continue on to graduate school.
