Theater Studies
As part of a well-rounded liberal arts education at Mills, students have the rare opportunity to receive a solid foundation in theater through a partnership with one of the country’s most celebrated professional theaters, American Conservatory Theater (ACT) in San Francisco.

This innovative theater major with ACT combines the artistic discipline and training of a rigorous studio program with the intellectual rigor and scholarly breadth of a first-class liberal arts college. The students will experience interdisciplinary collaborations with various Mills departments, absorb the professional atmosphere of ACT, a Tony Award-winning regional theater, and engage in San Francisco’s vibrant artistic and diverse cultural community. This new BA is the ideal program for the student who desires both an academic and experiential theater education as a foundation for their future endeavors.

About the Theater Studies Major

The theater major is built on the equivalent of 11.5 Mills course credits and it is designed with a mixture of courses that are taught on and off campus. Half of these requirements are offered at Mills. The remaining courses are to be taken at ACT in their studios located in downtown San Francisco.

In order to complete ACT’s requirements, students will have the choice of registering for an intensive fall or spring semester (four days a week) or registering as a part-time student at ACT, taking a course or two per term, while completing the BA at Mills. Students will have the chance to take courses concurrently to fulfill the prerequisites necessary to register for the major requirements at ACT.
