The Part-Time program is intended for those who are employed and require a flexible schedule or evening classes. It includes 2 Method Acting (MAT100) classes with 2 different teachers for a total of 8 clock hours a week for 12 weeks.
For those who want to continue their Method Acting training, re-enrollment in additional 12-Week Part-Time terms is common.

Course offerings and times vary by session. Students who successfully complete the 12-Week Program (Part-Time or Full-Time) will be awarded a Certificate of Participation. Successful completion of the 12-Week Full-Time program counts toward completion of a Conservatory Certificate program (One or Two-Year). The Part-Time program does not count toward Conservatory program or certificate completion. (Please see Part-Time Pathway for Part-Time Conservatory options.) Credit awarded in the 12-Week program does not count toward the 2-year AOS degree program.
