The MFA Acting for Stage & Screen is a unique 2-year degree that will reflect the challenge for most working actors today, which is to work confidently both in stage and screen acting.
This is a practice-based course, and it aims to prepare students for an industry in which creative problem solving, advanced practical skills, business acumen, team working, and self-generated work are critical.
We hope to train students who will graduate with all these abilities and can thrive as freelance performing artists across a range of opportunities within the creative arts industries.
