Mission Statement

The Department of Theatrical Arts at Utah Valley University cultivates student success by challenging our BFA, BA, BS Ed, and AA theatre majors and non-majors to become professionally competent and artistically literate as they complete their academic degrees and courses. To deliver these outcomes, we practice interactive teaching, build critical skills, and create innovative productions that engage campus and off-campus communities.


The liberal arts Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Arts 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. A Bachelor of Arts in Theatre or another art form is often regarded favorably by medical, law, and business graduate programs because it demonstrates that the graduate is well rounded and effective in communication and problem solving.
