Program Description:
Theatre Academy London (TAL) is a theatre-training program which enables students to study in London with some of London's leading theatre artists and earn major academic credit towards their degrees. Chapman students will take four courses at TAL: Introduction to London Theatre; Movement Techniques for Theatre I; Scene Study, and Dialects for the Stage. 

TAL is fully accredited by Florida State University and students may apply for a single semester or the full year.

All of the faculty are encouraged to use the city of London itself as a text, incorporating field trips within the city into their classes. These trips are complimented by an extensive social/cultural calendar for all the students, including daytrips outside of the city, excursions within London, and other events held at the Study Centre.

Located in historic Bloomsbury, a stone’s throw from the West End Theatre District and housed in a row of seventh-century townhouses, the London Study Centre combines modern conveniences with an historic setting. Consisting of fully self-contained and furnished apartments, the centre, amongst other amenities, boasts 24-hour wireless connectivity, three computer labs, a library, free laundry facilities, and a student lounge. Flats include shared bedrooms, bathroom with shower, living room with television, and a well-equipped kitchen. If these spaces are filled, students will be housed in comparable accommodations within central London.
