Two courses per semester are recommended. These are just our suggestions. However, you are welcome to orchestrate a curriculum that works for you as long as you are aware of the required prerequisites for the intermediate classes (which can be found on our class listings). We are also here to help you find the next best step for you.

If you need further assistance in planning your schedule, feel free to contact our office at 512-223-7219 or at theactorsschool@austincc.edu.

Note: When it comes to acting training, a six week course is just the tip of the iceberg! You will learn so much more and be able to go deeper by repeating classes, with the same instructor, or trying someone new! Often, teachers change up what they teach from session to session, allowing new ideas, and the chance to further your training. There’s also the chance that a light bulb will go off for something you’d learned previously.
