The FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training has been ranked #18 in top graduate schools for acting degrees in The Hollywood Reporters’ annual, ranked list, created by consulting with academics, influencers, and alum in the acting world.
“There’s a lot to like about Barry Jenkins’ alma mater, not the least of which is a completely waived tuition and a $10,000 stipend. In addition, students spend six weeks during their third and final year studying in London, all expenses paid. They also become full-time company members at the affiliated Asolo Repertory Theatre.”
The FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training is a three-year graduate program culminating in a Master of Fine Arts degree. Only twelve students are chosen each year from the thousands who audition nationwide to work in a program that combines rigorous classroom training with guest artist workshops and professional production experience.
Upon graduation, all students are eligible to join Actors’ Equity Association and enter the ranks of this country’s most highly regarded professional artists. Graduates of the program have appeared on and off Broadway, in regional theatres, in feature films and on television. The program was initiated by the Florida State University School of Theatre in Tallahassee in 1968 and moved to Sarasota five years later to establish a permanent relationship with the Asolo Repertory Theatre.
