The Bachelor of Arts is a flexible liberal arts degree offering an extensive knowledge of theatre arts. The program, offering a balance of theatre core classes and electives, allows students the freedom to design their own curriculum.
This is an ideal program for a student with multiple interests in theatre. In a given semester, the School of Theatre offers classes in performance, directing, various aspects of design and technical work, specific areas of theatre history and performance studies, dramaturgy, theatre management, playwriting, play analysis, and stage makeup.
BA students may blend theatre training with a different academic pursuit by minoring or double-majoring in such areas as English, Humanities, Education, or other disciplines offered at FSU. BA students take an active part in production work.
Students interested in performing can audition for roles in any of our productions. Students can also be involved as stage managers and can participate in various production assignments and tech crews. Additionally, the Student Theatre Association, a student-run theatre organization, provides further opportunities for students to direct, produce, and be involved with all aspects of performance and production.
- Because of the nature of the program and the desire to admit students who will succeed in it, the School of Theatre has an application for admission to the Bachelor of Arts in Theatre program. Students who have been accepted into Florida State University and have indicated theatre as their desired major will receive a letter from the School of Theatre outlining the application process for the program. Students can expect to receive this notification within one month after being accepted to FSU.
