Off-campus Study Options

Reed students interested in performance have a number of off campus options open to them through College-approved programs. Study at the British American Drama Academy (BADA), coordinated by Sarah Lawrence College, offers students the opportunity to study acting and directing while living in London. Through Sarah Lawrence, BADA also offers a London program in Modern European Theatre for students of design, theatre history, and dramatic criticism. The National Theatre Institute at the Moscow Art Theatre School offers opportunities for study in Russia. Other options for study abroad include programs in Ireland, Cuba, Egypt, Germany, and France. 

Domestic programs offer additional chances to study performance outside of Reed. These include programs at Howard University, Sarah Lawrence College, the National Theatre Institute, Trinity/LaMama, and ACT, among others.
