Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in musical theatre.
The musical theatre program provides students with a solid theatre education and experience. Students take classes in movement, voice and acting styles. Courses in mime and stage combat are also offered. Musical theatre students take a series of support courses in music as well as upper-level performance courses. Students are also given opportunities to hone their skills as performers within experimental productions, performances as part of classroom work and the annual musical.
Listed below is a sample schedule of one of the four areas of concentration for a B.F.A. in musical theatre. Students pursuing degrees with an acting, directing or theatre design emphasis will have somewhat different requirements. For more information, please contact the Department of Theatre Arts.
The BFA degree in musical theatre requires 56 credit hours in theatre arts, 15 hours in music and the Drake Curriculum.
