Course Information


Acting at the Globe

BFA and MFA Acting students spend most of their Junior year of study at Shakespeare’s Globe. The students take classes in acting, voice, movement, text, historical dance, dialect, singing and stage combat, and immerse themselves in London life, history and culture. The residency culminates with a production on the Globe stage, before returning to Rutgers for their final training.

Design at the globe - in Association with the School of Historical Dress

Design students can immerse themselves in the architecture of the Globe Theatre and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, and use London as their classroom - the buildings, the crowds, the museums and the thriving theatre scene.

Students are guided through their course by a Course Director and design two projects with professional directors. They participate in sessions with master costume craftsmen or model makers, as well as text and context sessions and occasional practical masterclasses.
