The acting program at Purdue University seeks to expand the young actor’s range of knowledge and expression through the performance of drama. The actor is a channel for the truth in the play and must possess the ability to comprehend the playwright’s message and communicate it as a character. The acting program consists of acting core classes, specialized training, and related required courses. Upon completion, the student may choose to enter directly into an acting career, any communication-related field, or pursue graduate study for a career in theatre.
