The Theatre Design and Production BFA program is designed to prepare knowledgeable, skilled graduates who will compete in an increasingly competitive field. Students will learn to assess, explain, and interpret the many roles and responsibilities inherent to the world of the professional theatre artist. They will also understand how to use the skills they have developed in other career paths related to their degree.
Admission to the program is by audition/interview only. Auditions/interviews begins with an online screening process that culminates in program admission being offered in early spring for the fall cohort.
See the Auditions Procedures Page http://www.cwu.edu/theatre/auditions.
In addition to the department core courses, Design and Production BFA candidates must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in Theatre Arts with a minimum grade of “B-” (2.7) in each course within the Design and Production core courses.
Meeting this standard is reviewed as part of the annual jury.
