Mission Statement

Acting Degrees: From Craft to Career

The mission of Theatre of Arts is to prepare acting students for successful entertainment careers in theatre, film, television and media by guiding them through a process of professional and personal development—designed to render them into highly skilled performers who contribute original, creative and effective voices to the entertainment industry.


At our Hollywood campus in Los Angeles, we foster a safe training environment that is artistically stimulating, collaborative and conducive to growth. Our acting courses combine the strengths of classical training with the vibrancy and innovations of contemporary practice. The structure and content of our drama programs facilitate a clear learning progression for our students that can inspire confidence, trigger curiosity and unleash inventiveness.


Theatre of Arts proactively enrolls diverse talent representing communities that have been historically marginalized, providing individuals with the tools and training needed to affect change in our industry, and in turn, the global conversation. [See Diversity & Inclusion Policy]
