With a concentration in Acting, your Theater major will provide you with challenging, fun and intellectually demanding courses taught by MFA trained actors and directors. Your “classroom” experiences will prepare you for a wide range of performance genres while developing your unique talent and retaining your own center of truth. You’ll work closely with faculty, guest artists, directors and designers in productions that are tailored to closely mirror professional working conditions. The techniques learned in the classroom will be put into practice in the four main stage shows as well as in guest artist workshops and a variety of student theater and film projects all aimed at empowering the individual actor.
With our proximity to the NY/NJ Metro areas, Ramapo students have unique opportunities to gain experience through internships at Luna Stage, 13th Street Repertory Company, Merit Theater and Film Group, MAYO Performing Arts Center, New Vision Players, Plays in the Park and Write Act Repertory Theater, among many others. Students regularly intern with production companies and casting directors and several have been hired immediately upon graduation because of their internship experience. Exposure to industry professionals provides students with a valuable edge and connections as they begin their careers.
