Which Cal State has the best theatre program?

andc123andc123 Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
I applied to four cal states: CSUN, CSUF, CSULB, and SFSU. I was looking at some private schools, but I think they are too much and I don't want to take out high loans. I know cal state fullerton has a really good program, but I was just curious about how well the other cal states compare to. I am looking for something that has an acting or performance emphasis, but I also want to learn producing. Plus I am looking to get into some student films as well.

    CSUN has a great film school. It is located in center of San Fernando Valley near film studios and local theatres. As a theatre major you can minor in MT. World-class Valley Performing Arts Center right on campus. We saw a terrific production of "Parade" on campus recently. Well-connected alumni. Good luck.

    Someone mentioned Cal State Chico in a post so I took a look and it appears they have MT program. Also my daughter has a friend doing a theatre major at Humboldt that seems like a good program.

    If anyone is looking for California schools - it is not a cal state: Santa Clara has an Excellent BA non audition MT... pricey school though and academically competitive -- top notch non audition program.
