What you’ll study.

Acting and directing. Dramatic theory, history, and criticism. Theatrical design and technology. You’ll learn from faculty who have extensive experience as professional actors, directors, and producers. And you’ll learn in courses that balance critical, theoretical writing and discussion with practical training and personal coaching. Majors and minors.

What you’ll do.

Get on stage or work backstage—every Albion student is invited. We put on four department productions a year, along with two student workshops of plays in the fall and spring. With experience, you can design for productions. Spend time off campus studying in New York or abroad, or work on campus through work-study. Theatre internship opportunities.

Where you’ll go.

Auditions. Connections. Experience. Whether you enter the field or continue your advanced studies, you’ll benefit from our close ties to professional theatres, festivals, and the New York Arts Program. Potential career paths.
