BA vs. BFA vs. MFA

At the end of my junior year of high school, the acronyms BA, BFA, and MFA began to rapidly circulate amongst my group of friends - when it came to looking at drama schools, these terms would be tossed about in the hopes that knowing the differences between them would make our pursuit of an artistic career more efficient and more easily achieved.

I quickly became overwhelmed by the idea that I had to make such a big decision at such a young age, and how these three terms represented three alternative realities for my career as a professional actor.
