About the Pre-College Acting Studio

Emerson College’s on-campus Pre-College Acting Studio program is a pre-professional theater intensive that reflects the training offered in Emerson’s Acting BFA program. The four-week summer program, which qualifies for 4 college credits, provides an introduction to acting training including classes in voice, movement, improvisation, scene study, auditioning technique/monologues, and specialized classes such as Shakespeare or Alexander.

Classes are taught exclusively by Emerson's Acting faculty at our urban campus in downtown Boston, with additional specialty master classes offered by local professionals.

The Acting Studio is offered only as a credit program.
