The BFA in Acting major is an intensive program that prepares students for acting careers in the professional theatre both in New York and regionally. This major offers education and training in contemporary realistic acting and period styles, culminating in a year of Shakespeare training. Our BFA in Acting is a unique 60-credit hour BFA program. Most conservatory style BFA programs require 90-credit hours in theatre to receive the degree and thus are not able to offer the kind of liberal arts education that Marymount Manhattan provides to prepare students for the wide range of drama presented in the professional theatre.

BFA in Acting majors are exposed to a wide variety of playwrights and acting styles in the four year-long acting courses:

Acting I: contemporary writers such as Neil LaBute, Tony Kushner, Naomi Wallace, and August Wilson.

Acting II: classic American writers such as Arthur Miller, Cliford Odets, Tennessee Williams, and Lillian Hellman.

Acting III: 19th and 20th Century modern realism writers such as Henrik Ibsen and Anton Chekhov, and the comic styles of Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, and Noël Coward. Read More]
