Bachelor of Science in Theatre and Dance

Boeing Boeing by Lynn Lane

This department provides a well-balanced, unique curriculum* for both theatre and dance students that prepares students to enter professional careers, teaching professions, or other fields.

Our Bachelor of Science in Theatre & Dance gives students a well-rounded education in theatre & dance courses in the interdisciplinary professional program. Based on his or her interests and talent, each student also chooses an emphasis area in acting, dance or technical theatre.

Courses in the emphasis of the students' choice concentrate on focusing the student's particular skills, knowledge and capacities, while courses in the professional program give a student the foundation necessary to be successful on a variety of levels.

Lamar University's three stages serve as laboratories for hands-on training. Students participate in all phases of our production program, including a wide range of theatrical works and dance concerts on the Lamar campus and throughout the state and nation.

Theatre & Dance majors frequently benefit from nationally renowned guest artists who are brought to campus to present workshops, teach, choreograph and share their experience and knowledge with the students. A variety of departmental and college endowed scholarships and departmental assistantships are available to qualified students.
