Undergraduate theatre majors can pursue a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree or a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree with a concentration in Acting, Design/Technology, or Musical Theatre. All students enter the program as BA students, with the exception of students pursuing a BFA with a Musical Theatre concentration.
BA in Theatre
The BA program in theatre is a broad-based program of theatre practice and study for the student seeking a foundational theatre education rather than specializing in a single track.
BFA in Theatre
The BFA degree concentrations in theatre offer pre-professional training to a limited number of highly motivated and talented students aiming at professional careers. The BFA student can pursue one of three concentration areas: Acting, Design/Technology/Management, or Musical Theatre.
All prospective students will apply to CU first as a BA in Theatre. Students may apply for a BFA concentration after acceptance, if desired (Musical Theatre excepted*).
