Find your Creative Voice with a Degree in Theatre Arts and a Concentration in Musical Theatre
The BA in Theatre Arts with a Concentration in Musical Theatre prepares students to be a triple threat in this exciting form of theatre, with special integrated emphasis on voice, dance and acting. The Theatre Major has a specific Theatre Core of courses required by all three concentrations. Together the Theatre Core and Musical Theatre Concentration fully address the academic/theory side of theatre as well as the specific performance-oriented courses.
As one of only a handful of Christian universities to offer a Musical Theatre Concentration, we offer specialized courses in musical theatre such as Auditioning for Musical Theatre, Vocal Technique, Musical Theatre Dance, Private Dance Lessons, Private Voice Lessons, and Private Acting Lessons.
