Bachelor of Arts in Theatre - Design & Production Major
About the Program
The student will receive a solid foundation in the design and production of theatre as part of a well-rounded liberal arts education. Working as part of a team, the student learns to communicate and collaborate in a creative environment toward the realization of a theatrical production. Each student may choose to focus on a given area of the design and production process. Upon completion, the student may pursue a career in the theatre or related areas, or explore advanced training and/or graduate study.
In addition to coursework, the undergraduate at Purdue has numerous opportunities each year to participate in and gain experience from productions. Advanced undergraduate students are often assigned to design and production positions in the Mainstage season.
