Undergraduate Studies

Our Bachelor of Arts degree prepares students for a full life in the theatre and the broader cultural sector. We believe that nurturing creativity and fostering critical inquiry are the foundations of arts production. The BA program is therefore designed to develop skills needed to create and appreciate new work, to understand the history of theatre, and to help navigate professional lives in the arts. This academic exploration incorporates demanding practical training in performance and technical theatre, providing opportunities for our undergraduate students to learn through the laboratory of our productions. We envision the BA as the beginning of an on-going life of learning about theatre in its many forms, with applications for numerous career paths in the arts industry.
