Our students practice collaborative skills on realized productions in the black box and mainstage theatres alongside peers, faculty and guest artists. All students receive hands-on career mentoring. The BFA degree has three separate tracks for acting/directing, design/tech and stage management. The BFA includes one year of professional internship.
