Both include lectures, workshops, and practical experience in all phases of the theatre.  Please note:  Admittance to the Theatre Arts (BFA) Perfromance Concentratration requires a successful audition and interview. Incoming students who are interested in this concentration will be initially enrolled as drama (BA) students.

Students must enroll during their first term at USA, except for summer-entry students who must enroll in the fall semester following entry. DRA 150 will fulfill the technology proficiency requirement for Theatre & Dance majors.
