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, students 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.
They will graduate with a comprehensive portfolio of experiences and knowledge, enabling them to be ‘industry-ready’ at a high level.
The collaboration with the SJT ensures that employability is embedded from the outset and exposure to creatives and industry professionals will facilitate high-level networking, enhancing professional opportunities and prospects following completion of the degree.
The course provides skills training in the art of acting and the business of acting, in a versatile range of contexts including commercial live theatre, recorded media, and educational and community settings. From a business perspective students will be introduced to business concepts including marketing, budgeting and entrepreneurship, in order to ensure that graduates are able to market themselves as professionals.
