Theatre: Design, B.A.

Recommended Course Sequence

Admission to the Theatre Department: Theatrical Design Concentration is by interview with theatre faculty.

The BA in theatre with a design concentration provides foundational training for those specifically interested in designing sets, costumes, makeup, and lights for the stage. Students in the major will be able to understand and develop skills necessary to design in theatre, musical theatre, church, school, community, military and professional settings, cultivate team-building and leadership skills and achieve a level of confident independent expression in the theatrical medium. The major is intended to provide a broad foundation leading to professional work and/or advanced degree work in theatre particularly in the area of design.

No grade below “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.
