Acting Degree

Azusa Pacific’s Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting for the Stage and Screen program is the largest Christian theater program on the West Coast and is located only 25 miles from Hollywood. This 63-unit BFA program is designed for students who would like to act professionally in theater, film, and television.

APU is one of the only Christian universities in the country to offer a BFA that trains students how to act in theater and film. Our proximity to Los Angeles provides students with incredible opportunities to bridge the gap between their education and real-world application. Students are taught and directed by professional actors and directors. In the fourth year of training, seniors act in a web series that permits them to be SAG eligible and participate in an industry screening in Los Angeles.

All prospective students must audition prior to beginning the program. Learn more about the BFA program.

For students who wish to explore other theatrical professions, Azusa Pacific University also offers a Theater Arts major (B.A.).
