Prospective Students

Theatre Program

The drama program consists of a series of courses for majors and non-majors alike, all of which use London as their backdrop.  While some courses, such as Stage Combat and Styles of Acting are restricted to majors, there are other courses open to all students that offer immersive theatre experiences through reading and attending multiple productions across London's extensive and varied theatre scene.

Students will go to the Royal National Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe on the South Bank, commercial theatre in London's West End and Off West End, and fringe theatres like the influential Royal Court and the Almeida in Islington or the Orange Tre in Richmond.  Participants in the drama program also visit Stratford-upon-Avon to see a production by the Royal Shakespeare Company.  Courses in the program are taught by British nationals who are experts in their fields, which allows majors to make degree progress and nonmajors to study theatre in a world-renowned theatre center.
