Acting Course Content:
This highly practical course provides a thorough preparation for a career in acting to those aspiring to be successful actors. Although there is a strong element of academic research, this is often approached through practice, emphasising the vocational nature of this course.
You will learn the key skills required to respond to the diverse demands of the industry and how to become a creative, flexible and independent artist. As well as strengthening performance skills you will learn self-discipline, self-motivation, and develop a critical and imaginative engagement with the social, cultural and historical contexts of performance.
Year 1 introduces you to the fundamental processes, techniques and theories that will enable you to develop a methodological approach to acting relevant to Psychological Realism. Through an experiential and analytical process, you will discover a wide range of creative pathways. Classes in performance theory, dramatic literature and theatre history provide you with a grounding and context for the practical work on the course. Techniques and skills required for working on camera are also included this year. You will also regularly attend movement, voice and singing classes designed to underpin your acting work.
Year 2 involves an in-depth exploration of performance styles and classical text through research, practice and presentations. This is followed by an analysis of contemporary performance. You will consider through performance how form, style and structure can affect meaning, content and audience engagement in a theatrical event. More advanced study of acting for camera and basic requirements for radio and voice-over performance are also undertaken. Contextual studies will encourage you to identify and consider potential performance-related careers or postgraduate study options beyond your study here.
University / College Credit:
It is possible for students to transfer credits earned on modules completed at Arts University Bournemouth to their own universities. On successful completion of a semester course, you will be given a certificate showing the credits you have earned at AUB.
