Undergraduate Degree Programs

Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts (B.A.)

This liberal arts degree requires a student to complete general academic and theatre requirements, as well as demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language. It is recommended as preparation for careers in theatre, education, and an array of allied fields.

An option is available that permits students to take 14 credit hours in an area of specialization (TAG) in lieu of the foreign language requirement. The program is designed to prepare students for competency in acting and directing, theatre history and literature, design, technical theatre or education. As a result, students can acquire the skills to teach theatre, to continue training in graduate school, and/or to work professionally in commercial and regional theatre.
