B.F.A. - Performing Arts: Theatre
Our brand new BFA in Theatre is intended to serve students interested in taking on a “hyphenated identity” as a theatre artist. Increasingly, theatre artists work between areas: creating the work they might act in or direct; becoming artist-scholars who interweave the work of scholarship and artistic practice in new ways; developing companies where they may at various times be a writer, a producer, a dramaturg, and/or a performer; working as an educator who develops productions with their students. By offering a breadth of knowledge engaging all these areas while also requiring a depth of study in the area(s) most pertinent to each student’s professional goals, we believe this concentration will prepare you to work professionally across artistic boundaries in the quickly evolving world of theatre where you will be creating their own opportunities, leading the collaborative process, and training the next generation of artists.
Current students shoud speak to their advisor, if interested in joining the B.F.A. – Performing Arts: Theatre in the next academic year.
