BFA Theatre

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre degree program is divided into two curricula for students pursuing Performance and students pursuing Stage Management or Design and Technical Theatre.

The various programs of the Department of Theatre offer creative opportunities for theatrical learning and pre-professional training at every academic level. Undergraduate majors may prepare for careers in teaching, acting, design/technology, and related fields. The Department sponsors a large number of production activities and practicum experiences in the Hillberry Gateway, and Allesee Dance Theatre. Participation in these activities is available to all University students.

Immediate Production Opportunities

BFA Performance majors are required to audition each semester for possible casting in an array of productions. While many programs place restrictions on students interested in design or stage management, our undergraduate students are given opportunities to practice their craft.
