The B.A. and the M.A. degree programs are designed to enrich the student’s aesthetic and intellectual needs in the areas of theatrical production, theatre history, literature, and criticism, and to provide pre-professional training.
As a lab for their formal training in the classroom, undergraduate students are required to participate in department sponsored production activities each semester. TheatreCSUN functions as the department’s formal producing organization. Eight or more full-length productions of dramas, musicals, and operas are cast, rehearsed and mounted annually by faculty, staff, students and guest artists. These productions are available for student participants on an audition or volunteer basis. All aspects of the program are carefully coordinated with the theatre curriculum. Four minor options in theatre are designed to provide an organized program in theatre arts for students who wish to augment a major in another field.
The B.A. degree in Theatre prepares a student for advanced study in a pre-professional (M.F.A.) or academic (M.A.) program. It also serves as preliminary study for a performance and/or production career in live theatre as well as the allied industries of television and cinema. The interpersonal and collaborative skills learned in the program will serve the graduate well in a variety of related disciplines including the fields of education (both as teacher and administrator), psychology, law and a variety of private and governmental positions where a well-rounded liberal arts education will provide the flexibility and broad base of knowledge likely to be required in future careers.
