The Department of Theatre offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. It concentrates on undergraduate programs that stress the interdependency of academic and production experiences. This liberal arts program emphasizes the importance of a broad theatre background and the mastery of theatre fundamentals in preparation for the more advanced training found in graduate schools or in professional theatre internship/apprentice programs, or for a career in theatre education.
All students begin a major in Theatre Arts with a core of requirements. Through audition, interview and/or advisement, the Theatre Arts major then selects a particular emphasis that will aid in attaining career goals. Theatre Arts majors must earn a minimum of at least a “C” (2.0) in each major course. A GPA of not less than 2.5 is required in the major.
