Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Performance


Students are expected to make continued progress in their development as actors and artists. Retention is earned by the faculty’s evaluation of the student’s work, commitment, progress and personal growth. The BFA in Theatre Performance majors audition for all Departmental productions, and accept roles as cast. They frequently perform alongside MFA acting candidates.

BFA students can earn points in the Equity Actors Candidacy Program toward requirements for their Equity card.
