What is Acting at WVU like?
Our competitive program is considered one of the best university acting programs in the country because of the intensive class time devoted to acting training.
Our faculty are working professionals who understand the needs of the actor. They’ll help you build a foundation in dramatic theory, text analysis, theatre history, dramatic literature, directing and other industry essentials.
Typical BFA students perform in as many as 15 productions in their time at WVU. BFA acting students are the core of the casting pool for five to six mainstage productions, as well as up to 20 workshop and second stage productions per year.
Upon graduation, students either enter into the profession immediately or are admitted to a high caliber, graduate training program.
