B.F.A. in Theatre Arts: Acting Degree
The B.F.A. in Theatre Arts: Acting degree program educates
students for work in the theatre and its allied branches. While a
performing arts education provides students with the skills and
attitudes necessary for a life in the theatre, it also seeks to awaken
in the student a creative sensibility through a serious study of the
traditions and literature of the theatre. Because the program
recognizes the importance of both aspects of the performer's training,
the acting degree curriculum, which offers a spectrum of basic and
advanced acting styles, takes place in a liberal arts setting.
All acting majors, after being accepted by audition, spend the
first four semesters acquiring the basic vocal and physical skills
required of the actor. The second four semesters are devoted to
refining, polishing, and honing these skills. Throughout the entire
four years, students participate in a wide array of performance
activities, including technique and class scene study, solo and
ensemble work in chamber theatre, cabaret, and community performances.
