The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree allows students to explore multiple aspects of theater, film, and television with fewer credits required in the major. This degree plan may be appropriate for students transferring from another program who cannot devote the time necessitated by the for the BFA degree plan, or for students who wish to pursue general elective courses in areas outside of theater and film. The BA degree is structured with anchor courses during each year, but allows students to structure their major elective courses to a specific area of study or to select a more general curriculum by structuring their major electives from a variety of theatre/film disciplines.
