It is widely recognized for its intensive training and comprehensive Conservatory approach to training the whole actor.
Dramatic performance training at CCM includes:
The 2014-2015 school year will be the 32nd year of training actors who earn the BFA in Dramatic Performance degree from the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) at the University of Cincinnati. Check our * NEW * special page 32 at 32 under the Notable CCM Drama Alumni page to read about 32 actors for our 32nd year.
In our 32 year history we have welcomed actors from around the nation and the world. These actors found what they were looking for in our BFA program and chose to study in Cincinnati in our exciting program.
We are a busy school. The actors in our program are busy. We would have it no other way. We play hard, we train voraciously, and we reach for the stars.
