students in a masterclass

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Drama degree in the School of Theatre at UNCG is our core undergraduate theatre program. The BA is designed as a challenging and comprehensive exploration of critical skills needed to succeed in the field of theatre. BA in Drama students take theatre classes that develop foundational skills in acting, directing, script analysis, design, playwriting, dramaturgy, theatre history and dramatic literature.

The BA experience provides performance opportunities and also prepares students through required work in costume, scenic, lighting, publicity, and/or properties shop assignments. BA students pursue graduate study or enter the profession, working in diverse careers in theatre, film, and television, often as casting agents, stage and screen writers, theatre managers, educators, directors, and marketers. BA students also become community leaders through community-based theatre such as Foster Care Chronicles.
