Undergraduate and Graduate Credit
High school graduates, matriculated college students, and adults may register at no additional charge for three (3) semester hours of undergraduate credit from Skidmore College. The course designation is TH304 (Special Studies in Acting). For more information please consult the Skidmore College Catalog. Students registering for credit will be expected to comply with Skidmore's academic policies.
In cooperation with the college's Master of Arts in Liberal Studies Program, post-baccalaureate workshop participants may earn up to three (3) semester hours of graduate credit in Theater Special Studies. Graduate study is a self-directed activity, under the supervision of Anne Bogart, and may include independent study and a written or oral project. An official transcript conferring a bachelor's degree is required. Students currently enrolled in a graduate-level program may want to investigate whether these credits will apply toward completion of their degree.
