Study in the center of American theater, New York City, where new plays and musicals are created, tested, and showcased and new talent is sharpened, challenged, and celebrated. Our campus is a short subway ride from Broadway, Off-Broadway, and off-off Broadway, providing opportunities for young theater artists to witness the wide range of what it means to be a professional in this competitive field. The King’s College hosts actors, directors, producers, stage managers, and agents who speak about what they do and how they do it. We also create networking opportunities with Christian theater artists in NYC who understand the transformative potential of live theater.
NYC Semester in Theater (NYCT) is a 15-credit program. It is designed according to the course framework below.
Students can choose from the Theater/MCA course offering. May include optional internship for credit on a competitive basis. Course descriptions can be found in the catalog.
Students can choose from a variety of politics, philosophy, economics, media, culture, and arts course options. Students may also choose to pursue an internship for up to three credits, depending on the requirements of their home institution. All internships are competitive, and we cannot guarantee internship placement.
