I always thought Yale had no undergraduate Theatre program--certainly not at the level of Juilliard or NYU in terms of BFA Acting programs. My own alma mater, Northwestern (where I took my degree in Interpretation not Theater, but we shared a building), did not, when I was a student have a BFA in Theater--all theater majors received the same B.S. Speech (now, B.S. Communication) degree--there were some natural paths people with different aspirations followed--those aspiring to become actors typically took the three-year acting sequence, starting in the sophomore year--there was a freshman acting class that I think most Theater majors took, regardless of their ambitions), most often all three years with the same instructor (which had its plusses and minuses--ask those who were in Bud Beyer's "studio". I knew one person who took a different instructor for each year--she wanted to learn from as many different acting teachers as she could. She seemed to have come out of the program with fewer wounds. Interestingly, her favorite was Ron Parady, who left (he may not have been given tenure) and continued to have a decent working life as an actor.
