Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Schools & Departments

The undergraduate faculty of Performing Arts is committed to the following learning objectives for the BFA in Theatre program.

Students will:

  1. Learn and be able to demonstrate a basic theatre literacy, both academically and experientially.
  2. Learn to think critically and analytically about the literature and function of a particular area of theatre.
  3. Demonstrate a skill appropriate to a particular focus such as directing, playwriting, dramaturgy, or other aspect of theatre.

The BFA in Theatre invites students to develop an area of focus in theatre. Although production and studio work remain central to the curriculum, BFA Theatre students have greater flexibility to tailor their programs by taking courses in other academic departments; to add minors available from a variety of disciplines across the College; and to participate in activities such as internships, the LA Program, ProArts Consortium, and study abroad. The four advanced elective courses must reside within the Department of Performing Arts (PA/TH/DA/MU).
