Musical Theater BFA

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Programs (Graduate and Undergraduate)

This program provides a solid foundation in vocal performance, acting and dance. It creates for the students a more thorough concentration in a performing arts discipline, rather than just a minor in music or theater. The program also improves opportunities for students to become involved with the campus community and in the larger community. Performing Arts programs do this by their very nature. The BFA concentration in Music Theater will allow our students to focus on a formalized area of study while they contribute to the world around them.


Students MUST audition for admission to the program. Auditions occur in the spring of each year. New students will audition before entering their freshman year and must demonstrate talent, initiative, and potential for success.
