Theatre Teaching (BFA)

The BFA in Theatre Teaching is a four-year professional degree that prepares students to teach theatre in a variety of dynamic and challenging learning environments.

One of the unique strengths of this cutting edge program is the focus on methods not just for teaching in public education, but also for teaching in applied theatre outreach situations—urban school settings, community outreach partnerships, social justice intervention projects, and non-profit professional and community theaters, especially within TYA, the Theatre for Young Audiences field that encompasses children’s theatre, youth theatre, and drama/theatre-in-education programming – any program that employs devised theatre techniques.

Theatre Majors in other BFA emphasis areas such as Acting, Musical Theatre, Stage Management, Design, and BA Theatre Majors, may still complete minimum requirements for a Theatre Teaching Endorsement qualifying them to enter a teaching certification program, to be taken either simultaneously or post BA/BFA graduation.
