Stage Management (B.F.A.)

The bachelor of fine arts degree in stage management is a student-centered pre-professional program that combines hands-on experience and theory with a liberal arts education. This program is ideal for the student looking to develop as a leader and project manager in the ever-changing entertainment industry, with a well-rounded understanding of social equity and its relationship with production. Stage Managers exist in the thrilling intersection of artistic intent and logistics, and are expected to create and maintain infrastructure in order to facilitate goals they share with collaborators. Across four years of study, stage management majors focus on developing managerial and artistic instincts as well as emotional intelligence. They learn and apply common practice in theatrical production, as it exists in the commercial and non-profit sectors of the industry, and explore variations in practice across many arenas in the performing arts while sculpting a unique professional style of their own.
