Briercrest College

Through Rosebud School of the Arts' partnership with Briercrest College, RSA students can transfer up to one year, or 30 credits, of training towards an Associate of Arts or Bachelor of Arts degree at Briercrest.

Meanwhile, students from Briercrest College can take courses at RSA during an academic term or a full year with the assurance that these courses will transfer back to Briercrest and be applied towards a minor in Theatre.

Briercrest, located in Caronport Saskatchewan, is a community of rigorous learning that calls students to seek the kingdom of God, to be shaped profoundly by the Scriptures, and to be formed spiritually and intellectually for lives of service.
For more information about the transfer program, please speak to the Registrar.

RSA is a partner school with The King's College in New York City, allowing students to transfer one semester's worth of study to their RSA credential.


In Mentorship Level 1 students begin to focus their training on a specific field of study within theatre.
  • Students design their curriculum by selecting from a wide range of courses, including private acting and vocal coaching, choir, scene study, movement, voice, directing, design, writing, theatre history, and topics in technical theatre. Course selection may vary from year to year as RSA tailors the curriculum around individual students and their interests.
  • In addition to course work, students are involved in two productions on the Studio Stage. Students perform in the shows under the guidance of an experienced director and stage manager while taking on production responsibilities in set, costumes, props and/or lighting under the supervision of production advisors.
  • MP1 students also participate in their first International Theatre Trip to London or New York. A diploma is awarded upon completion of Mentorship Level 1.

In Mentorship Level 2 students continue to study their chosen discipline, building on their previous year’s learning. In the MP2 year, students start to work more independent of their classmates,  auditioning and participating in Rosebud Theatre and RSA productions and student projects. They also participate in the second International Theatre Trip to London or New York.

In Mentorship Level 3 students begin preparations for work in the theatre industry. While they continue with advanced courses from previous years, this is a time for internships, job shadowing, networking or leadership positions. All students produce a Final Project of their choice. Students continue to mentor with Rosebud Theatre as they prepare to graduate as emerging artists.

Upon completion of all three years of the Mentorship Programme, students are inducted into the Rosebud School of the Arts Guild as Fellows of Rosebud School of the Arts (F.R.S.A.).
