The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in theatre provides a broad liberal arts education with a concentration in theatre. The School “core” of courses includes dramatic literature, stagecraft, theatre history, construction, acting and directing. There are a number of credits that the student, with input from his/her advisor, can choose in order to focus on a specific area of study within either the Acting/Directing or Design/Technology divisions.
The BA also provides the student an opportunity to double major. As a liberal arts degree, it may form the basis for further training on the graduate level. The BA is ideal for those students desiring a theatre career but whose area of strongest interest is undecided.
