Prospective students often express the desire to study abroad. The benefits to young actors of interacting with other cultures and other people in other countries are obvious. We learn empathy, we learn to listen, and we make new stories. The impossible becomes possible and tangible.
As a result, study abroad is encouraged, and CCM Acting students have a rich history of studying in amazing locations around the world.
But there's more. As well as studying abroad, many CCM Acting students complete internships with agencies and in the offices of casting directors in both New York and Los Angeles during the summer months.
Wait. There's still more. Many CCM Acting students audition for and are accepted into various Summer Intensive Training programs, using the summer months to study with professionals on a daily basis in a new place with actors from around the country and world.
Because of the intensive work load during the school year, students looking for enrichment through study abroad, or internships, or intensive training programs, do so in the summer months. No such programs can be completed during the school year.
CCM Acting has a rich history of placing students in some of the most interesting, challenging, unique, and life-changing experiences in the world.
