The liberal arts Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Arts at Utah Valley University is, in many cases, a better preparation for MA/PhD programs in theatre than a  Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. The Bachelor of Arts cultivates an entrepreneurial ability that has prompted many of our graduates to found and run their own companies.
