Department of Theater, Mason Gross School of the Arts
The bachelor of arts (B.A.) program in theater is designed for those students seeking a liberal arts education coupled with a solid fundamental overview of theater. The program provides a high-quality, general perspective of theater encompassing academic study, performance studies, production practice, and appropriate internships. Several opportunities exist for students to study abroad in university-sponsored programs. B.A. students enjoy several performing/production outlets with extracurricular theater organizations on campus: the Cabaret Theater, the College Avenue Players, Hillel Theater, and the Livingston Theater Company.
See the Mason Gross School of the Arts section of this catalog for faculty listing and bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) information. Students who wish to specialize in acting, design, or production should consider auditioning or interviewing to be a B.F.A. student. Please note that casting opportunities in departmental Rutgers Theater Company productions are limited to bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) and master of fine arts (M.F.A.) students.
