Design & Technology (including Stage Management) Interviews

Intended Design & Technology majors interested in applying for the BFA degree should schedule an on-campus interview.  

o   Please note you may also interview for the BFA degree in your freshman or sophomore year.  An interview is only required for admission directly into the BFA Design & Technology major, not for the BA Theatre major. 

o   BA Theatre majors may take all design, technology, and management courses, apply for production positions, and are regularly given production assignments.  However, BFA students will have priority in production assignments.
