The Bachelor of Acting will unlock your imagination, encourage curiosity and build resilience. This degree is only offered to a small number of high quality performers and is designed around four key pillars: core craft; context; repertoire; and industry engagement.
You'll draw inspiration from the most highly regarded actor training models around the world, and share some subjects with students in the acclaimed Bachelor of Musical Theatre. Under the direction of renowned teachers and performers, you will undertake intensive training in acting, voice and speech, singing, movement and dance. You will be exposed to a range of genres and undertake ensemble work, collaborative laboratories, industry-led workshops and public performances.
You may also be interested in the drama major in the Bachelor of Arts.
Drama training is essential for the development and encouragement of young performers, and this course supplies the skills and knowledge to build and sustain a successful career.

An actor needs discipline, dedication and determination to succeed in a competitive industry. We all continue to learn throughout our working lives but I applaud Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University for creating a new course designed to give emerging talent a sound grounding to start their career.
Bachelor of Musical Theatre
Since graduating from the Bachelor of Musical Theatre in 2017, Courtney Monsma has been cast in a host of high-profile shows, including Mamma Mia, Aladdin and Six at the Sydney Opera House.
In 2020 Courtney was cast in the lead role of Frozen: The Musical.
“This is a dream come true and I am so grateful for this opportunity. I’m so grateful to everyone for the support and guidance that has led me to this point and excited for the journey ahead.”
It is expected that this program will interface with Griffith Film School, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse and other local and national performing arts companies. Discussions are also underway with interstate and overseas academies and international providers. You will emerge highly skilled in acting and performance and ready for a career on stage or on screen, including (but not limited to) theatre, television and film.
