Molloy College BFA Program


Applications are now being accepted for Fall 2018.

Students enrolled in the program will move together through the courses on Molloy's Rockville Centre campus, located 40 minutes outside of New York City, where the Molloy/CAP21 facility is located. As they pursue the B.F.A. degree, Molloy students will experience both Molloy College campus life and the New York City professional theatre surroundings at Molloy/CAP21. During their first year, freshmen will spend three days a week taking a variety of academic and studio classes at Molloy. The other two days of the week will be spent taking classes at Molloy/CAP21's Manhattan Center at 26 Broadway. For sophomore, junior and senior years, B.F.A. students will take two days of classes at Molloy and three days of classes at Molloy/CAP21. Throughout their eight semesters in the B.F.A. program, students will take a wide range of performing arts classes that will include: Acting, Voice (both ensemble and individual), Jazz and Ballet. The Molloy College BFA Program boasts of offering a private voice lesson to every student in the program every week of every semester for four years.

Performance Opportunities

Although first-year BFA students are not permitted to audition or participate in performances, they will enjoy numerous performance opportunities beginning in their sophomore year.  These performances are held both in Manhattan and at Molloy's new performing arts center, The Madison Theatre.

In their final semester, BFA students may participate in industry showcase opportunities in Manhattan designed to help them secure representation as they launch their performance careers.

How to Apply

Submit a Molloy Application or complete the Common Application.  Once academically admitted by Molloy College, students will then be required to audition. The Molloy/CAP21 BFA Program requires each applicant to prepare two contrasting 32-bar cuts of a song and a one-minute monologue from a published play or screenplay. The audition may be completed in-person or submitted electronically. Following their "artistic" acceptance, the student will then be officially enrolled as a BFA in Theatre Arts student.
