Your Degree. Your Way.

The BA in Theatre at Miami University gives you the ability to focus on what you love most in theatre (acting, directing, playwriting, design, technology, etc.), while providing a well-rounded understanding of the entire art. We believe that this broad experience helps you develop a wide range of skill sets, and gives you a strategic edge in the job market. 

  • Make theatre from day one, and actively participate in productions throughout your first year.
  • Create and devise your OWN theatre through one of our student-driven production opportunities.
  • Double major, take a minor, or study abroad.
  • Enhance your Theatre degree with Creative Arts co-major or minor. We offer co-majors in Arts Management and Fashion, and minors in Music Theatre, Dance, Fashion, Music, Studio Art, Emerging Technologies, Games and Simulation, Digital Innovation, and Arts Management.

We encourage you to explore our website for detailed information about our degree and our program,
