About

The B.F.A. General Theater Major at Ohio University is an HTC program, which offers exceptional students the opportunity to study the many aspects of theater in one-on-one relationships with theater faculty members. Maximum opportunities will be afforded for the student to progress well beyond the material found in conventional courses. 

Overview

Program Overview

  • The B.F.A. General Theater Major at Ohio University's purpose is to serve as preparation for graduate study and the professional theater. Students will receive a degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Honors Tutorial College.
Tutorials
  • Students are required to complete eight tutorials, including two devoted to the thesis for four credit hours each. In addition to the tutorials, the student must complete the Tier I English requirement, all core courses not covered by tutorials, and an appropriate number of approved electives. Internships and/or study abroad may be included within the program with special permission from the director studies (credit will only be given once). Honor Tutorial students take a minimum of 15 hours per semester.
Freshman/First-Year Admission
  • Students are selected by the director of studies of the theater tutorial program and the Honors Tutorial College on the basis of superior ability and sustained motivation. We look for good scores on standardized tests, but we also require a good high school record (class standing in the top 10%). An interview with the director of studies is required for acceptance into our program. Recommendations from two high school teachers are strongly recommended. The personalized aspects of the tutorial system occasionally make it possible for us to accept students who have not performed well on standardized measures of ability but who demonstrate exceptional aptitude in other ways.
