Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theatre



The B.A. in musical theatre is intended for the student who has strong ability in music and theatre. The program allows the student to take advantage of wide-ranging liberal arts studies while focusing on an interdisciplinary emphasis in both music and theatre.

The curriculum for musical theatre provides courses to serve student needs in all three areas of musical theatre performance:

  • acting
  • singing
  • dancing

Musical theatre students acquire knowledge in all areas of musical theatre performance: acting, voice and movement for the stage, audition techniques, basic piano and theory, private vocal study, musical theatre history and literature, stagecraft, and theatre dance.

Music theatre students will perform in mainstage musicals of all genres, cabaret offerings, and studio performances.

A minor area of study is not required since the degree offers areas of concentration in both music and theatre.
