The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Arts with a concentration in Design and Production is a pre-professional degree that combines a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of theatre with concentrations in costume, scenic, lighting or sound design; technical production; and stage management.
The B.F.A. gives you the artistic, intellectual and technical groundwork necessary for a professional life in the theatre and for further specialization through graduate studies. The 120-credit curriculum includes pre-professional training, the study of theatre history and literature, and a wide range of liberal arts courses. This is a process-based, hands-on degree. With strong personal mentoring in your area of specialization, you will make practical application of your training through substantial participation in productions of the Post Theatre Company.
Students gain hands-on experience at professional facilities on campus, including the Little Theatre and the Costume and Scene Shops.
Graduates of the program are working at NBC, on Broadway, in regional theatre, and on national tours.
