Landry Allbright uses acting to communicate
As an Acting major, you will move through a four-year sequence of progressively intensive training. During your third and fourth years, 75 percent of your work will be in the program itself. Retention in the program must be earned by commitment, personal growth, and a faculty evaluation through a re-evaluation process four times during freshman and sophomore years.
Because an intensive residency is essential to the success of the Studio, BFA students are not eligible to participate in the Los Angeles Program during the academic year. However, BFA students may use elective credits to participate in the L.A. summer program.
Please read the BA/BFA ACTING PROGRAMS HANDBOOK for more details about the program.
