BFA in Theatre Arts—Design & Production

The theatre arts major offers unique training for students with vital theatrical sensibilities whose particular interests and abilities are wide-ranging. It best serves two kinds of students: those who demonstrate the maturity to create an interdisciplinary program combining theatre with another field of study and those who demonstrate the leadership and imagination to create original works.
