It includes schools that grant either a degree in acting or a degree in another major that has an acting component or concentration. In general, B.A. and M.A. programs are more academic in nature (though they may offer a performance component or concentration), while BFA and MFA programs focus on training professional performers.An A.A. is a two-year junior-college degree. The list also includes non-degree acting programs that have a structured curriculum.
