About the Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Program


The Bachelor of Arts in Theatre is designed to produce well-rounded theatre generalists. Graduates will possess training that will prepare them to assume roles in regional theatres, enter graduate school, or allow them to assume leadership positions in the community based theatres. Students will develop an understanding of the many aspects of theatre and the collaboration required to produce and perform theatre pieces through both technical competency and broad knowledge of theatre. In addition, students will be allowed to develop specific skills through advanced coursework and gain practical experience in acting, directing, or technical theatre.
