Wells College and AMDA

A collaboration agreement has been announced between AMDA and Wells College.

AMDA College of the Performing Arts, established in 1964, has been a pioneer in performing arts education for 60 years, producing some of the brightest talents in the world of music, theater, and dance including Tyne Daly (Emmy Award Winner, Tony Award Winner), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Tony Award Winner), J. Harrison Ghee (Tony Award Winner), and Anthony Ramos (Original Cast of Hamilton, Star of Transformers film, Star of In the Heights film), just to name a few. With a mission to provide unparalleled performing arts education, AMDA continues to be a thriving center for innovation, talent, and academic excellence. AMDA has campuses in the two centers of the entertainment industry: Hollywood and New York City. AMDA provides rigorous, performance-based training and an industry-focused educational experience; one that inspires excellence and prepares artists with an appreciation for the universal power of transformation through art. AMDA’s educational philosophy is based on close collegial interaction between instructors and students — in class, in production, and through active mentorship. The school offers Bachelor of Fine Arts degree programs in Acting, Musical Theatre, Dance Theatre, and Performing Arts as well as two year conservatory programs.

The mission of Wells College is to educate students to think critically, reason wisely, and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. Through Wells’ academic program, residential atmosphere, and community activities, students learn and practice the ideals of the liberal arts. The Wells experience prepares students to appreciate complexity and difference, to embrace new ways of knowing, to be creative, and to respond ethically to the interdependent worlds to which they belong. Committed to excellence in all areas of its reach, Wells College equips students for lifelong learning and for sharing the privileges of education with others.
