Create your future

The Bachelor of Arts in performing arts degree is a nationally distinctive program that will prepare you for a career in many aspects of the arts. The curriculum offers separate concentrations in audio technology, music and theatre. Our faculty are dedicated to hands-on, experience-based education and our students participate in undergraduate research projects and off-campus opportunities that give them professional experience and introduce them to multi-disciplinary studies. A culture of performance excellence and small classes makes each student a vital partner in the educational process. Using the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts as a living arts laboratory, we welcome students seeking a unique program of study in the performing arts.
