The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in the School of Theatre at UNCG offers two distinct paths: the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting and the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting with Musical Theatre Focus.  These are comprehensive programs for the student of outstanding promise and motivation whose goal is a career in theatre, film, television, and musical theatre.

Entry into this selective program is highly competitive and designed specifically for those seriously pursuing acting as their occupation. Auditions are held three times each year on the UNCG campus for high school seniors. Students who are chosen for the program arrive their freshman year and immediately begin a range of intensive classes in acting, voice, movement, singing, stage combat, dance, and acting for the camera, along with courses in theatre history, technical theatre, and general liberal arts courses. 

The School of Theatre’s association with Triad Stage (an equity theatre based in Greensboro) provides additional opportunities for BFA actors working toward their professional goals.  BFA Acting students have the opportunity to audition for the UNCG New York City Showcase which is presented for entertainment industry producers, agents, and casting directors as an entree into the acting profession.
