Overview

Students will benefit from the rigorous artistic demands made by courses in areas of specialty in the School of Theater, while also meeting the challenges of a liberal arts education. Although you are encouraged to select courses that provide an emphasis for your work, students will not major in any one area of theater or concentrate exclusively on any one area of interest. All theater majors are required to attain a grade of C (2.0) or better in any theater course required for graduation.

The B.A. program also provides an opportunity to major in more than one discipline. Second majors such as English, history, creative writing, journalism, music, criminal justice administration, prelaw, and sociology have been successful choices.

Opportunities Upon Graduation

One of the goals of the B.A. in Theater at Ohio University is the preparation of the most gifted students for successful admission to graduate schools or other advanced training in theater or other areas. However, even if you do not wish to extend your studies beyond the baccalaureate level, the B.A. in theater addresses both the quality and the diversity of your studies.
