A number of Fordham theatre majors choose to spend their junior year abroad. In recent years, many students have studied in Russia, England, Italy, France, and Australia. Study abroad opportunities for Fordham theatre majors include:
Fordham's London Dramatic Academy
An intense, 14-week program in British classical theatre. Students take master classes in acting, theatre history, movement, and stage combat, and see work by the National Theatre Company and the Royal Shakespeare Company. For more information, visit the Office of International Initiatives.
Fordham's Russian Theatre Workshop
The Fordham theatre program, in conjunction with the Moscow Art Theatre, offers a three-week, winter-break intensive workshop in which students study acting, stage and costume design, directing, movement, and Russian theatre history with the master faculty of the Moscow Art Theatre School. Students attend performances of Russian theatre, dance, and opera, and visit historical landmarks.
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.
