Many of our students pursue a semester of off-campus study during the fall semester of their junior year. As a result students receive a more expansive perspective on the practical and intellectual applications of theatre and dance.
If you are planning to study off-campus, please consult with your adviser and the Office of Off-Campus Study. Together, they can help you identify programs and courses that match your interests and needs. Some of the programs that our students have pursued in London include the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and The Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Our students also have attended the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin, Ireland.
Students in theatre and dance may also consider immersing themselves in New York City for a semester by participating in the NewYorkArts Program. Students in the program live in a Chelsea brownstone and work in the NYC professional creative community by pursuing an internship with a professional theatre/dance company in their field of interest. Internships have included working with professional lighting designers, choreographers and dance companies, acting schools, and casting agencies to mention a few of the possible opportunities.
If you intend to study off campus you will need to plan ahead. Applications for off-campus study are due early in the spring semester of the year before you study off-campus. For more information, see the Off-Campus Study website.
