Academics & Curriculum
IAB is a vocational conservatory, helping students to develop their performance skills from dedicated, innovative teachers. This intense program marries technical skills and creativity within a professional performance context, including a high number of weekly contact hours and individual feedback sessions, as well as the opportunity to create shows in IAB's fully-equipped theater. Participants on this program earn the equivalent of 15 CatholicU credits through coursework in four modules. These modules are:
- Movement & Voice
- Acting Technique
- Critical and Analytical Studies
Accommodation & Meals
Student halls are a relaxed and friendly focal point for students, just a minute’s walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to campus. Students are responsible for preparing and cooking for themselves, using the shared facilities available in their accommodation. The IAB itself has an in-house café which offers healthy options for breakfast and lunch, in addition to the countless nearby restaurants, bars, and cafés offering an alternative for meal times spent relaxing with friends.
