Program Details

Program Description

The BFA in Design and Technical Theatre introduces the student to all aspects of the theatre and is coupled with an extensive breadth of liberal arts requirements drawing from many other disciplines throughout WVU.

There are no areas of specialization in design or technical production at the BFA level. Students are exposed to all facets of design and technology through selected course work taken in all of the areas. Throughout the course of study, students must demonstrate a talent and ability in more than one area of the art form. Training also involves active participation in the production program and the opportunity to design fully produced mainstage production.

Career Profile

The program is designed for students who intend to pursue further graduate study in theatre, a professional theatre career, or who choose to enter a related profession where design and technology skills are highly desirable.

English Language Proficiency

All applicants whose first language is not English must provide proof of English language proficiency. WVU accepts either the TOEFL or the IELTS for this purpose. Please see Office of Admissions - English Language Proficiency for more information.
