Program Description

The Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and Performance Studies provides undergraduate students with a foundation in theatre and performance studies through the study of a variety of texts and styles, including classical and contemporary plays, musical theatre, folk and literary narratives, performance art, poetry, comedy improv, storytelling, solo performance, and personal narratives. Students choose between concentrations in acting, performance studies, musical theatre or design/technology. Internships with professional organizations and education abroad opportunities are integrated into the curriculum. An innovative season of diverse public performances offers students the opportunity to integrate classroom study with the highest standards of professional practice in research, performance, design, technical theatre, and the creation of original work. The program prepares students for entry into the profession or other related fields and for graduate study in theatre, performance studies, and related fields.
