OverviewLondon Map

Adelphi Theatre majors have the option of spending the first or second semester of their junior year at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in the Classical Acting Semester Program.  Students take classes with other semester students visiting the school and have the opportunity to meet and interact with full time LAMDA students.  LAMDA is one of the top theater programs in the United Kingdom.  LAMDA deals in excellence, passion, talent and imagination – creating an inventive learning environment and a friendly, supportive starting point for your journey into the profession. From your first audition or interview to your final LAMDA curtain call, progress is encouraged through practice, conversation and example.


While at LAMDA, students take a set of pre-determined courses taught by outstanding tutors with years of industry experience, and by leading directors, designers, writers and actors who choose to share their expertise with us. Our stage management and technical theatre students undertake work placements within the entertainment industry, with many securing employment with their placement companies directly after graduation.
All students at LAMDA take the same set of courses, which transfer back to Adelphi as 15 credits.   There is no exact course equivalency at Adelphi University for the LAMDA courses (That's why you're going abroad, right?  To take something new!), so several courses are combined to develop an equivalency. Find the Adelphi course equivalencies below.
