BFA: Theatre Studies
The BFA Theatre Studies Program focuses on the practical application of theatre scholarship and explores theatre production as a collaborative art form that is grounded in theory, criticism, history, research, and writing.
The theatre studies concentration is intended to lay the groundwork for students planning to pursue professional careers in areas of theatre for which advanced training or specialization at the graduate level is normally required. These areas include directing, dramaturgy, playwriting, social issues theatre, arts management, and theatre history and criticism.
Emphasis is given to a comprehensive study of theatre practices of the past, material participation in theatre practices of the present, and the discovery and application of theatre practices for the future.
After graduation, recent theatre studies students have pursued careers as arts administrators, directors, writers, theatre managers, casting directors, and performers. Many graduates have also pursued advanced degrees in theatre.
Theatre Studies students have many opportunities to employ practical applications of theatre scholarship. The flexibility of the curriculum allows for a high degree of individual exploration. In consultation with faculty mentors, students may integrate study abroad and professional internships as part of their degree program. The Theatre Studies also offers the possibility of pursuing minors or secondary areas of study.
