More than just a musical theatre school, Randolph College transforms performers into multi-talented professional artists through a rigorous training program that integrates acting for the stage and screen, vocal, and dance (jazz, ballet, tap), as well as theory and history.
The Randolph College curriculum has a forward-thinking two-fold design: provide a solid foundation in the performer’s craft, but also emphasize the artists’ responsibility to express their unique creativity genuinely and authentically.
Coursework is undertaken in three Academic Years and completed over 24 months. Each Academic Year is two terms of study, each 14 weeks long. Students spend an average of 27 hours per week in classes and related activities. A total of 40 credits is required to earn the Private Career College Diploma in Performing Arts.
