Theatre at WKU
Theatre on the Hill
The Department of Theatre & Dance offers two majors for students of theatre, and 3 possible minors. Our B.A. in Theatre is designed to offer students a broad exploration of theatre while also leaving room to include a minor (or to double major) in another discipline. Our BFA in Performing Arts degree provides both a broad study of theatre while also offering intensive pre-professional training in one of three concentrations: acting, music theatre, or theatre design & technology. Our minors in Theatre, Musical Theatre, and Performing Arts Administration are intended to augment your studies in another major.
