The Theatre School's Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Theatre Arts is our most flexible program and allows students to study and get experience in a variety of theatrical disciplines. The program is tailored toward students interested in pursuing careers in areas as diverse as directing, arts writing, educational outreach, literary management, arts administration or law.
Newly admitted Theatre Arts majors are automatically placed in the standard Theatre Arts curriculum, which includes all core and elective requirements for the B.F.A. degree in Theatre Arts. After completing a minimum of two quarters of study at The Theatre School, students have the option of adding a concentration in either Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) or Directing.
With respect to the core and elective requirements, students who do not declare a concentration remain in the standard Theatre Arts curriculum, which includes successful completion of all core requirements plus six elective courses in theatre (24 credit hours), chosen in consultation with the student’s advisor. The requirements for those students who declare a concentration in either TYA or Directing include successful completion of all core requirements plus eight courses (or 32 credit hours) to fulfill the requirements of the concentration.
