BA Theatre Arts

The Bachelor of Arts degree is designed to provide students with a theatrical world view, a foreign language and a minor that is supportive of their major career aspirations. Students are expected to achieve competency in performance, dramaturgy and technical theatre/design through such courses as acting, directing, theatre history, stagecraft, and stage technology. Approximately one-third of the total undergraduate credit hours in the BA degree program are devoted to theatre courses (36 credits) and provide a theatre generalist's body of course work and practical theatre experiences conducive to further study at graduate school, conservatory or regional theatre.
