A number of Fordham Theatre majors and minors choose to spend their junior year abroad. In recent years, students have studied in London, Dublin, Moscow, Mexico City, and more rich cities for training and cultural immersion all over the world. Study abroad opportunities for Fordham Theatre students include:
London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art
Fordham Theatre is proud to announce its new partnership with LAMDA. This intensive 11-week conservatory program is designed to develop your practical skills with advanced training in classes taught by industry professionals. The autumn semester is structured around scene study workshops on Jacobean tragedy and Shakespeare’s late plays and comedies, whereas the spring semester is based around scenes from Shakespeare’s histories and tragedies, and from English comedies of manners.

Performing in Italian
This summer course in Rome affords students the opportunity to advance their fluency in Italian by learning to act in Italian plays. Joseph Perricone of Fordham's Department of Modern Languages teaches the language component of the course, and George W. Drance, SJ Artist-in-Residence, and faculty member of the Fordham theatre program, teaches the acting component. Students take trips to Roman landmarks and attend performances of Roman theatre and opera.
