Why the BA?

The BA Program prepares artists to evolve as the industry is changing. Students in the BA Theatre program will graduate with a wide base of knowledge in many areas of the theatre, but what makes the BA so special is the ability to shape and mold the program into what you need it to be. Because the BA has 24 elective credits built in (the most in the School of Theatre), students in the program are able to pursue any minor in the School of Theatre. Students are also able to pursue courses outside of the School of Theatre. Some students pursue classes in film, arts administration, psychology, and education. The BA also fosters a collaborative environment, using a horizontal theatre structure to create and perform projects with their peers and their professors.
