The Department of Theatre and Dance offers six major degree programs and two minor programs all within the context of a liberal arts education. Competent craftsmanship, creativity, and the development of artistic responsibility are emphasized throughout a student's career. Students are admitted to the B.F.A. programs based upon auditions and/or interviews and only after being admitted to the University. Students must pass a second audition/interview at the end of their freshman year to continue in B.F.A. programs.
