Bachelor of Art Theatre

Bachelor of Art in Theatre

The Theatre Studies B.A. focuses on all aspects of theatre production—acting, directing, technical design, and literary analysis—and includes a strong emphasis on the history of performance art. Students will be prepared for careers requiring people with the ability to write and speak, to think creatively and independently, to understand the great complexities of the human condition, and to collaborate with others on group projects.

Audition requirements for the Bachelor of Art in Theatre

    1. An audition is required to be admitted as a music or theatre major or minor, to be considered for a scholarship, or to participate in a performance ensemble as a non-performing arts major. All prospective music majors take a placement test in music theory and are assigned to an appropriate piano course. Performing arts enrollment is limited, so early application is strongly suggested.
    2. Audition dates are subject to change. Verify dates on the School of the Arts website:
