In this course, students learn practical skills for life as a professional actor, including writing resumes and cover letters, understanding the actor/agent relationship and contracts, getting settled financially, developing a website, and accessing different types of support available to them as artists. Its aim is to give the actor strategies for navigating the business of acting as well as teaching them how to build a sustainable life in the theatre.
