About the B.F.A. - Theatre Arts
Students seeking pre-professional training leading to a B.F.A. degree in theatre arts can pursue concentrations in acting, design/technology, or musical theatre and must be admitted to the B.F.A. program by audition and interview. Students are admitted at the discretion of the faculty. Continuation in the program is dependent upon annual review and the faculty’s assessment of the student’s timely progress. Students whose progress is found unsatisfactory will be placed on programmatic probation. The number of hours required for B.F.A. theatre arts majors is 130, at least 40 of which must be at the junior and senior levels.
Communication Literacy Requirement. Texas Tech University’s transition from the Writing Intensive requirement to the Communication Literacy requirement signals the university’s awareness that in addition to the fundamental role that writing plays in enabling students to explore, develop, focus, and organize a message, other types of communication must also be taught as appropriate for a student’s discipline. Throughout each program of study, then, students must be given ample opportunity to develop their skills in forms of communication central to that program.
Communication Literacy courses for the B.F.A. in Theatre Arts are: THA 3308 , THA 3309 , and THA 3351 .
Total hours: 130 minimum
*Musical theatre students may be required to enroll in Level I DAN classes more than once before advancing to Level II DAN classes. Additional hours at Level I will not apply to the degree plan, but will provide essential skills development necessary to advance to Level II. For any student placed higher than a Level I or II, higher levels can be substituted for lower levels. Musical Theatre students must take at least one DAN class each long semester unless otherwise authorized by the Head of Area.
