The Theatre Performance concentration prepares theatre majors for a career as a professional actor. Through small-class studio courses and department productions, our program provides talented performing artists with a solid foundation in acting, movement, voice and speech, improvisation, and musical theatre. Both the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of General Studies (B.G.S.) require 40 hours. The primary distinctions between the B.A. and the B.G.S. degree are the foreign language requirement (required of the B.A. but not the B.G.S.) and 18 hours junior/senior concentration or minor (required for the B.G.S but not the B.A.).
