Degree Programs

The Department of Theatre Arts offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees are available for students interested in the study of theatre within a liberal arts background, or as part of a teacher education program. The Bachelor of Fine Arts is a rigorous, competitive program of study for students interested in pursuing careers in professional theatre.

A core of theatre work is required of all theatre majors. Specialization is available in performance or design at the undergraduate level, and students enjoy flexibility in shaping their studies according to particular goals or interests. Minors are available in theatre for those students wishing to expand the focus of their degree program.

The department also offers Idaho's only Master of Fine Arts in theatre, and students may select an area of emphasis in acting, directing, dramatic writing or design and/or technology (with specialization in scenery, costumes or lighting). Numerous opportunities exist to design, perform and direct productions, which are considered an integral part of graduate training.

The curriculum is intellectually, emotionally and physically rigorous. The undergraduate and graduate programs are skill-oriented. They focus on developing a student's working knowledge of their chosen field of study through prescribed coursework, class projects and production experiences. Small class sizes and a strong emphasis on tutorial work assures that each student's needs are fully addressed throughout their studies.
