The Bachelor of Arts provides broad career opportunities: students who are interested in several fields have the opportunity to minor in other subject areas. Examples of possible minors are English, business, or communications.
The Bachelor of Arts degree program in theatre prepares graduates to pursue additional academic degrees or enter professional theatre, teaching, or allied fields such as communication, public relations, etc. If they choose to pursue advanced degrees, BA graduates traditionally enter MA, JD, or PhD programs.
