CURRICULUM HIGHLIGHTS

BA Program Highlights:

  1. Broad spectrum of theatre training to include acting, directing, design, theatre history, theatre for social justice, and devising.
  2. Enough flexibility to get a second BA in another field, or have two or three minors.
  3. Focus on storytelling, creation, and producing new work.
  4. Personal connection to faculty with small class sizes and mentoring.
  5. Opportunities abound- OCU produces more than 50 shows a year and that means there are plenty of opportunities to audition, direct, and design shows. Also many theatre students that qualify for Federal Work Study are able to work in the theatre in different capacities. And finally, we have seven global partnerships in our study abroad program. This means you can spend a semester studying theatre in the U.K, Italy, or Spain during your four years of study with us.
