Theatre Degrees

The BYU-Idaho Theatre Department offers a number flexible degrees that fit the needs of every student. Each degree specializes in various technical theatre skills to prepare students for their future careers in theatre.


Theatre Education Major (BA)

A theatre degree in Theatre Education offers classes and experiences designed to develop performance skills as actors and directors, foster application of principles of theatrical design and technology, and to deepen their understanding of dramatic literature, theatre history and criticism.

Theatre Studies Major (BA)

This theatre degree program is an open enrollment, liberal arts style program with a basic core of study and a selection of emphases that can be tailored to address the career or life plans of individual students. This major is accompanied by four emphases that are designed to prepare students for their career path. A Theatre Studies emphasis is deliberately intended to be open-ended to allow you more flexibility.
