Theatre majors may choose concentrations in acting or design/technical theatre to prepare for a lifetime of practice in drama, music, and dramatic movement. Adelphi’s programs offer a unique blend of theatrical practice—the skills, crafts, and attitudes necessary to succeed in theatre, films and television—with the tradition of liberal learning through which each new generation of creators and critics reinterprets and revitalizes these arts. To this end, the Department of Theatre offers programs leading to a B.F.A. degree in theatre arts with specializations in acting and design/technical theatre.

Talent Scholarships

The Departments of Theatre, in cooperation with the Office of Admissions, offers several talent scholarships each year to outstanding entering freshmen who show evidence of unusual ability and accomplishment in the arts.

Honors in Acting and Design Technology

Honors in the theatre acting and theatre design technology are based on excellence in performance and production over the student’s four-year program at Adelphi.
