Pursuing a BA, or Bachelor of Arts, is an important step in preparation for a career in a specified field. Degrees are available in colleges and universities all around the globe, providing students with a wide variety of options in curriculum.

What is a BA in Acting? Studies in acting supply opportunity for creativity and expression. Programs provide preparation for careers in theater, film or television. Courses may include theater history and set design, but the main emphasis is training the student in the craft of acting. Classes in voice and speech are offered to develop better diction and intonation for clearer delivery of lines. Movement helps to release the creative spirit while examining body language and non-verbal communication. Scene study discusses approach and provides opportunity for exercising interpretation. Skills are further developed through school productions where experience is gained in auditioning and participating on stage and in film.

Much personal benefit can be realized through the study of acting. The program builds confidence, self-discipline and an ability to make a positive impression. Students also acquire skills and experience in working in groups and accepting criticism.

Cost of a degree in acting varies according to curriculum, school and location. Students should research their options and find the program that best suits their interests and goals.

There are numerous career options for work on stage and screen. Actors may audition for individual parts or provide minor supporting roles. Acting troupes employ regular casts for presentation of a variety of productions in many different venues. Speech skills can be used in voice-overs and narration. Graduates may choose jobs in set design, choreography or other related fields. A BA can be used as groundwork for more advanced degrees and a sharing of knowledge through teaching. Some programs offer the opportunity to prepare for a career as a comedian.
