Description of Program

The theatre program provides students with a solid theatre education and experience. Students have the opportunity to complete a wide range of theatre electives. With these electives, students can emphasize one particular area of theatre or create their own mixture of theatre classes. This degree also is designed to work well with a double major or dual degree.

Requirements for Major

The B.A. degree in theatre arts requires a total of 125 credit hours, including a minimum of 50 credit hours in theatre arts. The student is strongly encouraged to include a second academic major. With a second major, the total number of hours required will be determined by that department. If the major or minor requires less than 34 credit hours, additional hours may be applied as general electives.
