Note: The theatre faculty conducts a sophomore year review for all BFA candidates at the end of their fourth semester to appraise each student’s commitment, abilities, growth and academic progress. Students proving poor achievement in these areas may be required to transfer into the BA Theatre program. Additionally, BFA students must maintain a 2.5 grade average in their major to continue in that degree path.

 

Theatre Design and Technology majors are required to participate in all productions, either as cast or crew, or  possibly both.
