The BFA in acting is a pre-professional training program that prepares students for an acting career in theatre, television, and film and has an emphasis on experiential and academic training. Acting majors have the opportunity to perform in four mainstage productions each year, two Second Stage productions, and attend regional and national theatre festivals.

The rigorous training and varied experiences of the BFA in acting provides an excellent foundation for graduate study or careers in performance, academics, and teaching.
