About the Program


From acting to history, criticism, and stage crafts courses, students build a strong foundation in theatre arts, film and television through the B.A. program in Stage and Screen. Students can follow one of two paths of study by choosing either a General Concentration that gives a comprehensive education of the entertainment industry, or a Design/Tech Concentration for a more specialized focus.

General Concentration for students interested in a variety of fields, including performance, stage management, directing, producing, writing, and technical theatre.
