Theatre Design and Technology

The Theatre Design and Technology major is ideal for students who wish to pursue careers in set design, costume design, lighting design, or technical design. Students work with the Theatre Arts production crews and can select a focus within the design categories, which can help them build their portfolio throughout their time at Baylor. Courses available include:

  • Lighting Design
  • Theatrical Props: Construction and Management
  • Scene Painting
  • Costume History
  • Advanced Makeup Techniques

The department produces about 8 full productions each year. The productions vary from Shakespeare to pop musicals. All productions are performed in full by theatre students. 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. This programs gives students the opportunity to experience theatre in different cultures. Graduates can choose different routes after the completion of this degree. Some go to graduate school and others go to work in the entertainment industry.

Theatre Arts students can live at the Fine Arts Living-Learning Center in North Village. Living-Learning Centers are housing opportunities designed to place students of common interests together. 

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