The B.F.A. in Musical Theater combines an extensive protocol of theater performance coursework with a heavy concentration of vocal performance, keyboard and music theory studies. As with the B.F.A in Theater program, this degree is tightly structured, allowing fewer opportunities for elective coursework than is possible in the B.A. program. AN AUDITION IS REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION TO THIS MAJOR.
