Acting students in the Drama Division have the opportunity to enroll, as eligible, at the undergraduate or graduate level. Undergraduates may enroll in the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree; graduates may enroll in the Master of Fine Arts degree. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree program includes 18 credits in the Liberal Arts Department. The Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) degree program includes a sequence of graduate seminars. The minimum residency for both programs (B.F.A. and M.F.A.) is four years.

The Drama Division also offers a graduate-level Playwrights program. Please see Lila Acheson Wallace American Playwrights Program for more information.

Drama audition requirements can be found in the Admissions area on our Web site: www.juilliard.edu/admissions.

Standards of Achievement and Evaluation, Actor Training

Training in the Drama Division is rigorous and the standards for self-discipline and commitment are high. Students are encouraged to feel that they are in a professional as well as educational environment and that the goal of the training is their growth both as young artists and as informed members of our society.

Each student’s progress, achievement, and effort are discussed and evaluated quarterly by the faculty, shortly after each rehearsal or performance project is completed. While the focus of the training is on developing each actor’s imaginative, physical, and vocal capacities and their ability to bring the self to truthful transformation and interaction, continuing enrollment in the program is contingent not only on artistic growth, but also on conscientious application, including regular and prompt attendance at all scheduled classes, rehearsals, and Drama Division activities.

Students are kept informed of the faculty’s evaluation of their progress on an ongoing basis in class and through individual conferences at quarterly reviews or at other times at the request of the student or a faculty member.

It is the faculty’s desire and expectation that every student admitted into the program is fully capable of benefiting from and meeting the goals of the training.

If at any time the faculty’s assessment of a student’s progress indicates that there is a significant problem in any area(s) of the work or in fulfilling the Essential  Elements of the Curriculum, the Drama Technical Standards, the principles outlined in the Drama Division’s “Our Way of Working,” or the Juilliard Student Code of Conduct, the issue will be addressed with the student at a meeting with the Director of the Drama Division.

Specific disciplinary sanctions or a probationary time period for the student to address underlying issues may be imposed. A students who fails to meet the conditions of the probation risks dismissal from the program.
