Q: I heard that the MFA Program isn't accepting applications and isn't running anymore. Is this true?

A: The current iteration of the program is coming to an end, but the Conservatory is still running other actor training programming. All answers to this question, can hopefully be addressed in the MFA Program Letter.

Does A.C.T. offer other actor training programs?

A.C.T. introduces actors at the start of their training to an active, ongoing engagement with the eclectic and energetic arts community of the Bay Area through our San Francisco Semester, a 15-week study away program for undergraduates. Embark on a 15-week theatrical and cultural immersion—a rich academic curriculum that will lead you to cultural destinations throughout the city and the bay.

Our annual Summer Training Congress offers students a 6-week intensive program in acting with a focus on core skills.

From acting and improvisation to musical theater and monologues, adult classes are also available throughout the year in Studio A.C.T.
