Areas of specialization in the BFA in theatre include performance: acting or music theatre; and production: costume design, lighting design or scene design. The BFA in theatre performance is also offered at the New World School of the Arts in Miami.

In addition to the BFA, the Department of Theatre and Dance offers the Bachelor of Arts (BA) with a major in general theatre and with a major in drama education.

For all majors in theatre, students should consult an adviser as early as possible.


Admission to the Department of Theatre and Dance is selective. Before admission to the BFA program, students must audition successfully for the acting or music theatre major, or present a portfolio for the production major in scene, costume or lighting design. A resumé also is required. Video audition tapes will be considered.

Performance audition or design portfolio review ratings can establish the studentís placement level in studio course sequences. Students must consult the department adviser for admission audition/portfolio requirements and deadlines.

Students seeking admission to the BA programs must schedule an admission interview with the theatre adviser before starting the pre-professional courses.

Satisfactory Progress

Students must receive a grade of C in all courses in the major and stand for periodic academic and artistic reviews. All majors are guaranteed participation in the production program through the production and performance laboratory course and are expected to attend scheduled departmentals. The BA in drama education requires a 2.50 GPA.
