B.A. in Theatre: Creative life training for the undergraduate by experienced professionals!

As educators and mentors, we share our industry expertise as well as model the creative, collaborative, imaginative, and technical power of this art form through concentrations in performance, musical theatre, and a range of design and technology areas. Your training takes place in our world-class, tech-savvy hub for creativity, the University Center for the Arts.

At CSU, faculty, staff, and professional guest artists – all with extensive experience on stages ranging from Broadway to regional theatres, and worldwide – provide students with an experienced lens through which to study every aspect of theatre, including the theory and practice of acting and directing, musical theatre, theatre history/dramaturgy/playwriting, theatrical design and technical theatre, stage management, and storytelling/devising.

Upon academic admission to CSU and acceptance into one of the Bachelor of Arts in Theatre concentrations, students are provided with fundamental skills and experiences in theatre within a liberal arts context, honing vital life skills and preparing students for graduate study in theatre and potential employment opportunities in a variety of fields related to theatre, film, and other creative endeavors.
