About

An actor can be called upon to perform in a variety of venues, media and styles and this BA Acting for Stage and Screen at the Queen Margaret University will provide vocational and industry-relevant training through exploration, centred on acting for stage and acting for screen, and on the craft and practice of performance.

Overview

The BA Acting for Stage and Screen (Hons) at the Queen Margaret University will provide a distinctive and complementary course of actor training in the conservatoire tradition. It provides all the training that you will require to pursue a career in acting on stage or screen. It will bring together the fundamental skills of acting, character work, voice and movement, and explore the ways in which they are deployed and synthesised to create character and performance, and identify the ways in which these fundamental skills can be modified and made appropriate to the constraints of different media, narratives, and places of performance. 

While the emphasis will be on practice, you will learn the theories of performance in a classroom setting which will underpin practical workshops. Students will be required to interrogate their practice rigorously and, in so doing, begin to create an actor’s toolbox to which they will add over the years. It will serve them throughout their chosen career.

During both years there will be particular focus on style, and on the deployment of style appropriate to medium and genre. Through intensive study of the similarities and differences between the demands of theatrical and screen acting, graduates will have a critical understanding of how they might adapt their technique to other media and genres.

This course will enable you to convert an appropriate existing qualification into a degree and is equivalent to Years Three and Four of a degree.

The course will help you create an actor’s toolbox which you can add to over the years and which will serve you throughout your career.
