Located in the heart of Chicago, one of the world's great theatre cities, Roosevelt University's Theatre Conservatory offers you the opportunity to study theatre with professionals, within the resources of Chicago College of Performing Arts. Because of the program's reputation for excellence, students from around the world have studied theatre at CCPA/Roosevelt. The university recruits nationally for theatre students, however word of mouth remains the best recruitment tool, as graduates have become "ambassadors" for the program. A major selling point is the conservatory's outstanding internship program. Students receive academic credit for interning at Chicago's professional theatres. Another innovative part of The Theatre Conservatory is the summertime Fast Track Master's Degree for high school theatre teachers. This program was the first of its kind in the country and is now being copied by other universities.
