B.F.A. Acting

The BFA in Acting is designed to provide outstanding pre-professional training within a liberal arts education. This demanding option requires intense course work focused on the craft and study of acting; in addition, all acting students complete a strong core of liberal arts courses. Crucible Tituba Hale

  • Our acting faculty inspires students to approach learning with curiosity, empathy, courage, and joy. We challenge our actors to be thinkers, athletes, responsible citizens, and motivated theatre artists who will make a difference in creating the next generation's voice. 
  • Our low student-to-faculty ratio allows for the personal development of each artist as an individual.
  • Students receive hands-on advising and mentoring from a faculty of working professionals with extensive experience in theatre, film, and television.
  • Our undergraduate-only program allows students numerous opportunities to perform and learn experientially. 
  • All seniors have the opportunity to audition for professional casting directors who cast and direct our New York and Chicago Senior Showcases, and our L.A. Experience.
