Overview

With a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from the Brind School, you'll be taught by professional, working actors. You'll attend classes in the middle of one of the nation's largest thriving artistic communities–Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts–steps away from the Kimmel Center, Merriam Theater and the Academy of Music, and within easy reach of more than 100 theater and performing arts companies.

The Acting Program prepares our students for professional careers in theater and film/TV, as well as for continued study at the graduate level. And most importantly the training offers breadth and depth in a variety of studies and practices, which enables students to function successfully as active and productive members of society at large.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program in Acting are expected to:

  • Demonstrate a capacity for creative risk-taking, engaging their unique imaginative impulses and contributing strong generative proposals in both devised and scripted work with trust in themselves and the ensemble;
  • Fully integrate an active imagination with an active and dynamically aligned body, and a strong, supported voice, all capable of meeting the demands of text, character and given circumstances;
  • Effectively analyze scene and play structure, identify dramatic conflict, and shape specific choices of objective, obstacle and tactic that serve both the needs of the script and the artist’s imaginative impulse.
