The B.F.A. in acting concentration is for students who desire a professionally oriented education and training in acting. Only those who exhibit exceptional talent, motivation and commitment will be admitted to the program.
Prior to entering the junior year, or upon transferring to Cal State Fullerton, all students electing the B.F.A. in Acting concentration must audition (“jury”) for admission to the B.F.A. in Acting program. To be eligible to jury for the program, all candidates must complete the following (or equivalent): THTR 140 , THTR 141A , THTR 141B , THTR 240A and THTR 240B with a “B-” (2.7) or better in each course; THTR 200 with a “C” (2.0) or better; and an audition in acting. It is strongly suggested that candidates complete THTR 241A and THTR 241B (or equivalent) before they jury. If accepted into the program, all transfer students and previously declared B.F.A. in Musical Theatre candidates must complete THTR 241A and THTR 241B by the end of their junior year (their first year of studies as a declared B.F.A. major).
In addition to the requirements listed below for the major, students must meet the university requirements for a baccalaureate degree.
