Fordham University MT?

Anyone know anything about the quality of Fordham University's MT program? D's acting coach recommended this school with a fine BA in theater. I know it is right next to Lincoln Center but know very little about the program. If anyone attends the program or could provide feedback, I would be grateful.

    Unless it is new, I do not believe Fordham has a MT program. Their theatre program is strong from what I understand.

    That is what I thought and when I looked at the website it says nothing about mt. I think the acting coach is really more about acting....lol

    It's a BA in Theatre, but they do put on some really interesting new musicals!

    But do they offer vocal training as part of the theater degree...it didn't look like it on thier website. I know (as a dance teacher) that they parner with Alvin Ailey Dance Studios to provide a BA in dance but know nothing of music there....

    Fordham is NOT a musical theater program, though (as they told my D when she was auditioning) there is some singing in some of their shows. Fordham offers a BA in acting/performance.
