The faculty evaluates students desiring to become majors via an interview. All prospective students must prepare and provide the following:

  • Résumé
  • Three current letters of recommendation
  • Transcripts of prior college credits

Interviews will be held on select dates in March-August. We encourage all students to visit campus before committing to our programs. However, if you are unable to visit campus during one of the listed times, we will conduct an interview for the BA Theatre Studies program via Skype. In order to set up an interview via Skype, all materials must be submitted in advance. Click here to schedule an interview in person or via Skype.
