Program Description:

The artistic staff of The Old Globe Theatre, long involved in educating, training, and developing actors, has joined with the University of San Diego to create a program specifically addressed to the minds as well as the voices and bodies of aspiring actors. This program provides the classical skills and the rigorous literary grounding that classical drama requires, thereby meeting the needs not only of the Old Globe Theatre itself but also of classical theater nationwide.

Students participating in this two-year, 60-unit program fulfill the academic portion of their study at the University of San Diego under the direction of the Department of English, and their practical theatrical work at the Old Globe Theatre, under the supervision of Globe staff.

This is a highly selective program, usually limited to 7 or 8 new admissions per year.
