Theatre Studies (B.A.)
Top Five Reasons
Mixing it up
The BA in theatre studies allows you the flexibility to pursue other interests, double majors, minors, even dual degrees.
Forging a path
Theatre studies majors are the innovators in the building: developing, devising, researching, and creating the theatre of tomorrow.
Seeing the big picture
The theatre studies program aims to develop holistic theatre artists: students who make the connection between disciplines in the theatre: playwriting, directing, acting, history, theory, design, technology, management, literature, and more. Elective credits allow students to delve more deeply into their specific interests during junior and senior year.
Learning from the professionals
Rather than studying several disciplines with a ‘generalist,’ at Ithaca you’ll study stage management with a professional stage manager, playwriting with a playwright, directing with a director, design with a designer, history with an historian.
The Ithaca College London Center, LA Center, and the National Theatre Institute in Connecticut or Moscow; students have also traveled as part of exchange programs in Paris, Prague, Rome, Japan, Dublin, South Africa, Spain, and a semester at sea. Our office of international programs will set up a study abroad experience almost anywhere in the world to match your curricular goals
