Theatre arts majors must attain a minimum grade of C in all required theatre courses.

(For information about courses that carry general education credit see General Education Program.)

Include six hours from the following ENGL courses:

3. Concentrations - 44-62 s.h.

(Choose one.)

a. Musical theatre concentration (61-62 s.h.)

BFA musical theatre majors begin concentration area courses during fall semester of the freshmen year. Therefore, auditions are held each spring to gain admission to the musical theatre program. For detailed information, see the School of Theatre and Dance website at www.ecu.edu/theatredance/

c. Stage management concentration (57 s.h.)

To move successfully through the program to graduation, the BFA stage management candidate will be reviewed annually by a faculty jury consisting of the stage management supervisor, one ECU Playhouse director, one design production faculty member, and the department chairman. The candidate must demonstrate to the jury that s/he is progressing and developing both scholastically and in stage management skills, as evidenced in both course work and in practice. A student who fails to pass the annual jury, who wishes to remain a department major, will be referred to the BA degree program in theatre arts.

4. Electives to complete requirements for graduation.
