Theatre Arts, B.A.

Requirements

The recently revised BA in Theatre focuses theatre majors’ work in a module (12 credits) in Performance, in Production, and a given specialty. The revised BA in Theatre Arts offers students a broader-based program that better reflects the liberal arts paradigm of BA degrees.

Careers

Careers:
The liberal arts BA degree in Theatre Arts is, in many cases, a better preparation for MA/PhD programs in theatre than a BFA degree. The BA cultivates an entrepreneurial ability that has prompted many of our graduates to found and run their own companies. A BA in Theatre or another art form is often regarded favorably by medical, law, and business graduate programs because it demonstrates that the graduate is well rounded and effective in communication and problem solving.
