The Acting B.A. program is an intensive degree program that spans seven semesters and requires students to gain a total of 240 credits. Normally, one semester comprises 20 weeks of training and an average workload of approx. 45 hours per week.
Apart from the development of acting skills and abilities, the program aims at a specialization in media.
Group and one-to-one courses that are held during the 7-semester program and are part of program-specific or interdisciplinary units and/or projects provide insights into all relevant practical and theoretical subjects, with a focus on acting in front of the camera and on the stage. Introductory courses are followed by projects providing further training and allowing for specialization. Main subject courses are continuously complemented by acting training (body, voice) with an adequate focus. At the end of the program, complex projects – i.e. film exercises such as the graduation film or theater stagings – allow students to provide evidence of what they have learned. In addition to program-specific courses, university projects involving interdisciplinary collaboration give students the opportunity to gather further experience and enhance their skills.
