University of California, Los Angeles
Theater - Acting B.A.
The Theater major provides undergraduates with a comprehensive education in theater, specialized training in one or more creative areas, and a humanistic, liberal arts education. Artistic training is combined with the study of theater history, literature, and aesthetics. The program`s goal is to challenge and expand the way the theater artist thinks as well as performs -- to produce well-educated, creative thinkers as well as thoughtful artists.
Applicants interested in the Theater major must choose one of the following specialized elective sequences on the UC Application: Acting, Design/Production, or Musical Theater. Alternately, they may choose Integrated Studies.
In addition to the general UC Application, these supplemental materials must be submitted by the published deadlines: a completed departmental questionnaire, personal statements, copies of transcripts, and a resume of theater training. Once the UCLA Application for Theater and the supplementals have been received, the last stage of the application process is an in-person interview. Acting and Musical Theater applicants are required to interview and audition. Design/Production applicants are required to interview and submit a portfolio. Integrated Studies applicants must interview, and have the choice of auditioning, submitting a Design/Production portfolio or submitting a sample of scholarly or creative writing. Applicants to the School must have a minimum 3.2 GPA at the time of application and must complete their general education coursework prior to entrance. Transfer students cannot change to the Theater major after they transfer to UCLA. Recommended courses prior to entrance: Acting, Design, Play Analysis, and Theater History.
