The Theatre degree program prepares students to pursue a wide range of career options in theatre, entertainment industries, and other related fields. The flexibility offered by the B.A. or B.F.A. degrees allows students to pursue a major that best meets their goals.

Academic Programs

Students who pursue a B.A. in Theatre must also complete a minor. The B.F.A. in Theatre is a professional course of study that provides specialized training in music theatre or applied theatre technology and design. The B.F.A. in Theatre does not require a minor. Please see additional admission requirements listed under the B.F.A. in Theatre. Further information, including procedures and requirements, may be obtained from the Theatre department.

Students considering a major or minor in Theatre should consult with faculty for advising.


All courses with a "THE" prefix, except those courses required for the minor, may be selected in consultation with an approved theatre advisor within the Department of Theatre. 

CAS 1010 Public Speaking is a prerequisite to THE 4220, THE 2210 and THE 3200. This course is required for all Theatre majors and minors. CAS 1010 cannot be counted towards the 21 credits required for the major or minor; however, it may be used to fulfill General Studies requirements.

A grade of "C-" or better is required for each course in this program to count toward the bachelor's degree.
