The B.F.A. in production design and technology is available with an emphasis on the environmental aspects of performance. Design and technology in scenery, costumes, lighting, properties, sound, stage management, and crafts are taught in a series of courses and special projects throughout the four-year curriculum. Productions are prepared under the close personal advisement and participation of the production faculty and staff. Qualified students are challenged with major creative responsibilities.

During the first two years, you should complete much of the theater core and general education requirements. In consultation with your advisor, you may also enroll in selected production design technology courses at the 200 level and above. At the end of your freshman year, you interview and present your portfolio for provisional acceptance into the program. Portfolio examples of Design and Technical work from THAR 130, 131 and 135 classes should be presented in addition to other examples of art work or technical work at the Production Design and Technology audition interview.
