Undergraduate Admissions

Specific information about the BA and BFA degrees offered through the Department of Theater can be found in the SIU Undergraduate Catalog and Department of Theater Undergraduate Handbook.

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Theater (pdf) and Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Musical Theater (pdf) programs differ in that the BFA degree is an interdisciplinary major (also available as a minor) and is a collaborative degree shared by the Department of Theater and the School of Music. The BA degree, on the other hand, is coordinated solely by the Department of Theater. Both degree programs fulfill University Core Curriculum and College of Liberal Arts graduation requirements.
