The department provides experiences that prepare students for teaching careers, graduate school or professional internships, and professional or recreational careers.

After admission to the university, your first few semesters are spent completing the liberal arts "core curriculum." After your core is underway, you can declare your major and begin to take more classes in your degree area.

You do not have to be a declared major to participate in our productions. We recommend that you visit the Department as soon as you can to discover ways to get involved.

Theatre Program Dance Program

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree is designed for the student who plans a career in theatre or dance or is preparing for graduate school. Students may pursue a BA in Dance Studies, Theatre Generalist Concentration, Design/Tech Concentration or a Performance Concentration
