Bachelor of the Arts

The Department of Drama offers a 33 credit-hour undergraduate major leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree within the College of Arts & Sciences, a 16 credit-hour minor in Drama, and an 18 credit-hour minor in Dance.

Even before becoming a major, however, a student may be an active participant in all the production activities of the Department and may enroll in any of several classes.

By the end of their study, a Drama major should be able to:

  • Connect theory and research to creative processes
  • Collaborate and work across a diverse range of artistic/scholarly methods
  • Write, speak, and think critically about design and performance
  • Synthesize theory and research into creative practice
  • Express value and transformative potential of performing arts within society
