Beginning in their first year, students may be considered for a wide variety of production opportunities, including mainstage productions in the Marian Gallaway Theatre and MFA student directed productions in the Allen Bales Theatre. 


Admission & Retention Process

Admission to the BFA Design and Technical Production concentration is by portfolio review and interview only. Students must make arrangements with faculty for a portfolio review and interview. Admission is determined on a rolling basis. Once accepted into the program, continuance in the BFA Design and Technical Production concentration is contingent on an annual “end of year” evaluation by members of the Design and Technical Production faculty.
