Hollywood Reporter Ranks Drama Department Among Top 25 Drama Schools in the World
Ranked no. 22, the department was cited for its strong acting and musical theater programs, as well as the opportunities afforded by its relationship with Syracuse Stage, a professional theater company, and the immersive Tepper Semester in New York City.
The department offers four bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) degree programs in acting, musical theater, stage management and theater design and technology, as well as a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree program in drama that features a theater management track. The department’s culture of rigorous conservatory-style training at a major research university with a direct connection to the working professionals at Syracuse Stage is of great benefit to students in all of its programs, including the non-performance areas.
Drama students also benefit from the support of the department’s extensive alumni network and additional study abroad/study away opportunities in Los Angeles, London (with classes at Shakespeare’s Globe and Rose Bruford College) and Florence, Italy.
“I am deeply grateful for the work of all faculty and staff–not only here in Syracuse, but at our abroad and away campuses in New York City, Los Angeles, London and Florence–for their ongoing contributions to the department’s excellence,” says Ralph Zito, professor and chair of the department. “I am excited to welcome the year ahead with their work and the work of our partners at Syracuse Stage having been recognized by the profession in this way.”
