A theatre concentration is valuable to students interested in pursuing a degree or career in the performing arts. Students studying languages, literatures, and other arts also benefit from drama programs. Acting schools develop language and communication and cultivate problem solving, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration skills.

You learn much more beyond just acting! As one acting school student says, "Anything difficult to produce is handled creatively: you never know who's going to come up with what." Of course, students love the profound concentration in theatre that can only be found in a private school.

Typical course offerings cover varied traditions and forms of theatre, ranging from Shakespeare, Chinese opera, and comedy to stage realism, expressionism, seminars, acting labs, design studios, and performances. Senior programs may close out the semester in a theatre production or a thesis grounded in historical and scholarly research about the performing arts.

Consult with the schools listed on this page to find out more about their performing arts curricula.
