The Bachelor of Arts degree in Performing Arts, with majors in Music, Music Education, and Theatre, offers students a myriad of options in the study of performing arts and in preparation for a career in the performing arts. The Theatre concentration in the BA Performing Arts is a versatile program that allows students to pursue theatre studies in the context of a liberal arts curriculum.
Our program is designed with an eye toward the realities of professional theatre and is directly connected to professional theatre in Georgia. Each faculty member is a working artist in the world of professional theatre. Students work closely with faculty to develop new work and/or discover new interpretations of classical works.
Students are also encouraged to complete a minor in another discipline. Students should discuss options with their advisors, and then contact the department responsible for administering the minor for details on its requirements. Those interested in completing courses in dance or music can easily fit these courses into their program of study.
Clayton State Theatre was established with the objective of preparing students for professional work in the industry significantly contributing to the body of theatre arts in the 21st Century.
