Breaking into film or stage acting is often difficult, even when you have received proper training. By pursuing a Master in Acting, students can hone their acting skills and better prepare for a career working on professional productions.

What is a Master in Acting? It is a program of study that involves learning and mastering techniques that transfer to acting on stage, in film or on television. In addition to acting techniques, students tend to study the business of film and theatre, script analysis, stage movement and speech. The one-to-two-year program often culminates in a presentation of student films or live acting presentations. Before getting accepted to a program, prospective students may need to demonstrate their acting skills in front of a panel.

Earning a Master in Acting is often a thrilling experience for students. Benefits often include unique opportunities to work on student stage and film projects, as well as a leg up in a competitive industry.

The cost of earning a master’s degree in acting differs depending on the institution and length of the program. There may be fees for materials for film or stage productions as well. Students are encouraged to thoroughly research their program of choice to understand the costs involved.

A master’s degree in acting can help launch students toward careers on professional stages such as Broadway. Many graduates also find jobs as production assistants for television and film directors. Acting is a competitive field, and although not every student might make an on-screen appearance, there are many different behind-the-scenes careers available with stage, television and film productions. Some students may even pursue a PhD and wish to teach acting at universities and other educational institutions.

After completing a bachelor’s degree in a related field, students can usually apply online for a program. Though some courses may be available online, most will likely need to be completed on a campus. A presentation of acting skills may also be necessary before acceptance.
