Program Description

The BA (Hons) Acting degree, in partnership with the world-famous Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, aims to produce proactive professional actors. The Stephen Joseph Theatre (SJT) is a professional producing theatre, was Britain’s first theatre in the round, and has premiered over 80 of the plays of acclaimed playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn.

In this unique partnership, CU Scarborough students will work with SJT professionals at points throughout the programme - including mentoring, observation of professional rehearsals, and participation onstage in a professionally-directed piece for theatre. Students completing the course will leave with a full suite of skills, experiences and contacts that will allow them to be fully industry-ready.

The course is dedicated to making acting an accessible and rewarding occupation for all, regardless of background. Over the three years, you will acquire a secure grounding in the skills needed to replicate human behaviour at a realistic level, insight into research-informed performance versatility, and a familiarity with recorded media.

Upon graduation, you should have a comprehensive portfolio of experience and knowledge, enabling you to be ‘industry-ready’ at a high level.
