AA, Conservatory


School is dedicated to liberating talent through craft by offering practical, rigorous acting training to aspiring actors who are determined to succeed. The Conservatory’s acting program offers an immersive, experience-focused two-year professional training program designed to give students the tools and techniques they need for successful screen acting careers while earning an AOS degree. The two-year Film and Television Performance curriculum is grounded in the experientially-focused Meisner technique and is designed to help each student develop the technique and discipline required to succeed in every form of screen acting, including commercials and voice-overs. Graduates of the two-year program will hold an AOS in Film and Television Performance, and graduates have the option of staying for a third year to earn a Certificate in Theater, or transferring their credits to another college or university as they pursue BA or BFA degrees.
