In this project, presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Theatre Arts, I have argued for the inclusion of an acting class as a core component in the general education construct. It is my belief that the class becomes a catalyst for change and growth for those enrolled. This paper seeks to define, argue for, and analyzes benefits of a general education and examines how an introductory acting class at California State University, Long Beach conforms to these parameters. The totality of my work has lead me to conclude that course content, structure and objectives of an introductory acting class provide a framework for the student to explore their humanity.
