About Theater Acting (B.F.A.)

Theater is a creative and collaborative art in which true excellence can only be achieved through exploration of craft. Our focus in the Theater Department at Mason Gross School of the Arts is to provide aspiring theater professionals with a unique experience including intensive studio classes, innovative academic curricula, and ground-breaking, fully supported productions.


The acting program offers an integrated and challenging 3.5-year course of study for students who aspire to a career as a professional actor.

This program features two full years of the Meisner Technique, a year at the Rutgers Conservatory at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, and a professional development semester designed to prepare students for life as a working actor.

All of this activity will challenge students in a full and complex way to deepen their understanding of theater, help contextualize their work, and give our graduates a distinct advantage in the world.

To apply, applicants must submit the Mason Gross supplemental application and complete and audition.
