Theatre

A Theatre Bachelor of Arts or Dramatic Arts minor allows you to develop a more general course of study than the BFA programs. Choose classes from a variety of areas including performance, design, theater criticism, and theatre history to provide a foundation for a well-balanced course of study.

In the Theatre program, you are encouraged to take an active role in designing your own degree plan and adding minors or certificates. If you are interested in a broad range of theater areas or a career in performing, designing, stage managing, directing, or any other production possibilities, this program is a great choice.
