Intensive, Rigorous, Rewarding

The Theater Arts and Acting program at Arcadia University goes beyond a traditional conservatory-style approach—immersing you in all aspects of theatrical creation. Our Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in Acting will challenge you to develop your talents, to cultivate your knowledge, and to think globally in a wider world of cultures and ideas.

The University’s intimate size provides close interaction with faculty in a liberal arts setting. Proximity to Philadelphia’s dynamic theatre community connects students with industry professionals who are regularly on campus as instructors and guest artists.

Arcadia Theater productions provide opportunities to bring all of those skills to the stage. Our productions are directed by prestigious visiting artists and resident faculty, all of whom are active in Philadelphia’s vibrant theater community.
