BFA Theater: ACTING Track
Be Yourself. Professionally.
Develop your unique artistic voice.
The BFA Acting program at Brooklyn College is dedicated to developing students’ abilities through rigorous, personalized training. The program accepts 10-12 students annually into the ensemble-based, conservatory-style training, creating a close-knit community of collaborative artists that progress through the program together.
Designed to prepare students to meet the challenges of a life in the arts and a professional acting career. The program offers intensive classes in acting technique, improvisation, on-camera acting, movement, voice & speech, solo performance, business of acting, classical text and contemporary and period genres.
The only BFA Acting program in the entire CUNY system, Brooklyn College boasts one of the most diverse student bodies in the world and exceptional professional training at a fraction of the cost of other undergraduate acting programs.
Get on stage
BFA Acting students have plenty of opportunities to perform! The Department of Theater puts on between 8 and 10 fully produced plays each year. BFA actors get multiple opportunities to audition for and act in our incredible production season alongside our BA and MFA actors. Plays are directed by faculty, professional guest directors from the NY theater scene and talented MFA directors.
Want to be in movies?
Our actors have exclusive access to www.BrooklynBackstage.com an incredible collaboration hub where actors, filmmakers, directors, designers, theater-makers and more find each other to make independent work. These collaborations often occur with members of the Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema, one of the top 25 film schools in the country, located at Steiner Film Studios.
