Theatre Studies, BA
The Theatre Studies Program combines studies in theatre with broad preparation in the liberal arts. Students master the fundamentals of acting, directing, history, literature, and design/technology and can use theatre electives to concentrate further in one of these or other areas. The B.A. program is designed to allow students to take a second major or to pursue minor concentrations in two or three other academic areas.
Because of the strength of the theatre production program in the department, the B.A. theatre studies student is in the particularly advantageous position to acquire a high level of practical, as well as theoretical knowledge-a distinction not afforded theatre students in programs with a lesser production emphasis. The student is encouraged to diversify in a variety of disciplines; courses throughout the department, as well as production opportunities, are open to these students.

Theatre Studies students can apply their education and experience to a variety of professions, particularly if they pursue an advanced degree. With the advanced degree, students can find positions in professional theatre as a playwright, critic, dramaturge, or journalist. Other possibilities include positions in public relations, business, or government. College or university teaching is an option for those who earn a graduate degree.
