The Bachelor Degree in Performing Arts of Nebrija University, the first official university program in Spain for dramatic art, trains the student in all the essential resources to successfully represent different passages or theatrical modalities, both gestural and textual, as well as interpretation before the camera for television or film. We do not train intellectually passive actors and actresses, but rather, through a solid humanist background, they are able to read the dramatic text in depth, understand its aesthetic and ideological content, analyze it and teach it to collaborate creatively in its staging through a broad base of solid artistic and conceptual knowledge.

Through these intensive courses, or specialization itineraries, the student can develop his/her talent, imagination and professional skills through practical workshops and audiovisual projects, in a multidisciplinary environment and in close relationship with Audiovisual Communication students: our young actors, screenwriters, stage creators, stage directors, producers and filmmakers will work as a team developing fascinating Stage Creation projects: short films, feature films, videos, theatrical productions, performances and multimedia creations.
