The study of theater may be completed as part of a "joint disciplinary" area of concentration through New College's collaborative relationship with the Florida State University/Asolo Conservatory of Actor Training, a highly selective graduate acting school located adjacent to our campus.
A component in theater should be undertaken by students as part of their undergraduate liberal arts education. Theater of course lends itself to this context, having many conceptual and historical relations to other liberal arts disciplines. Although over the years a few New College students have gone on to graduate study or professional employment in theater, it should be understood that theater study at the College is not preprofessional training; and students should be aware that making a career in theater remains extremely difficult.
