Medea: Masquer Theatre, Spring 2009

The Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre (BA Theatre) provides a broad liberal arts education with a concentration in theatre. The core of theatre courses includes dramatic literature, stagecraft, theatre history, construction, acting, and directing. Other courses are chosen by the student, with input from his or her advisor, and include classes in voice and speech, physical theatre, dramaturgy, teaching, and technology and design. The BA in theatre provides the student an opportunity to take courses outside of the major, to take up a minor or even to double major. The BA is ideal for those students desiring a theatre career but whose area of strongest interest in the field is undecided. As a liberal arts degree, it may form the basis for further training on the graduate level.
