The Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts is an academic degree designed to help you place theatre within the wider context of humanistic studies. The 120-credit curriculum covers the broad-based study of theatre history and literature, acting, dance, design, directing, playwriting, dramaturgy, management, and technical production. Classes are small and faculty members provide a supportive environment for you to develop as an individual artist.
