The Drama Department at CCM is recognized nationwide for its quality and history of training successful young actors. Our "first-rate BFA program in acting" (Backstage) creates graduates who are following careers in theatre, fim, television, and in national media. It is widely recognized for its intensive training and comprehensive Conservatory approach to training the whole actor.
Dramatic performance training at CCM includes:
The 2012-2013 school year will be the 29th year of training actors who earn the BFA in Dramatic Performance degree from the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) at the University of Cincinnati.
In our 29 year history we have welcomed actors from around the country to Ohio, from Kentucky and Minnesota and Texas and Georgia and Florida and California and Maine and Mississippi and Missouri and Arizona and Iowa and New York and New Jersey and Georgia and Pennsylvania, for example. 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.
If you are interested in CCM Drama applications will become available on-line September 1, 2012 and are due by December 1. Please explore the additional Drama pages to learn all you can about one of the most exciting Drama programs in the country.
