Acting Classes vs Degree - Question from New Actors

New actors often ask is it better to take acting classes or get a college degree.

In a perfect world, you do both.  Both have a lot of value.

The key to both is that you want to create a network and make connections.  These connections are critical to finding jobs. In the world of acting, jobs are often found because you know someone.  I got more auditions when I got to know a casting director really well.  It's "who you know" in this industry.

If you only can do one option, I would pick a degree because this will allow you to find more job opportunities in the future.  Acting skills work in a variety of careers.  And having the degree will give you even more opportunities.
