Theatre Arts

Baylor's Theatre Arts program offers a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Studies. The program provides a strong liberal arts degree along with experience in the field of theatre study. The Theatre Arts major provides a holistic education of the theatre while allowing room for focus, whether in playwriting, drawing, history, or directing. The required hours are ideal for a student desiring to include a minor or secondary major. Courses available include:

  • Scene Study
  • Theatre Histoy
  • Directing
  • Lighting Elements
  • Costume Elements

The department produces about 8 full productions each year, including summer plays directed by graduate students. The productions vary, anything from Shakespeare to musicals. All productions are performed in full by theatre students and the majority of sets and scenery are also created by the students. This hands-on experience develops the participants’ skill and experience.

The Theatre Department also offers a summer study abroad program every other year in which students travel to different countries in order to experience theatre in different cultures. Some Theatre Arts alumni have gone on to complete graduate school while others have gone on to work in the entertainment industry immediately following the completion of their undergraduate degree.

Theatre Arts students have the opportunity to live at the Fine Arts Living-Learning Center in North Village, along with other Fine Arts students. Living-Learning Centers are residence halls where students of common academic or extracurricular interests live together.

Prospective students must apply to join the Theatre Arts program. The application process includes an interview and audition.
