Bachelor of Arts in Theatre - Acting Major
For students who desire a program of study intended to provide pre-professional training for a career as an actor, or for preparation to enter a field where communication and collaboration are essential to success. The Acting program at Purdue University seeks to expand the student’s range of knowledge and expression through the performance of drama. Upon completion, the student may work towards a life in the theatre, choose to pursue a communication-related career, or explore advanced training and/or graduate study.
In addition to coursework, the undergraduate actor at Purdue has ample opportunity to perform. While acting in the Marquee Season is often the responsibility of advanced undergraduate and graduate actors, numerous opportunities exist each year for actors at the beginning and intermediate levels.
