BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight: Binghampton University

The BroadwayWorld Student Centeris a comprehensive Student Database listing college and university performing arts programs across the country making it easier for prospective students by showcasing programs searchable by schools, location, degrees and concentrations.

The Student Center also offers a show calendar of college and high-school productions where schools can upload photos, videos, cast lists, articles and other media content for each of their shows. BWW will be combing through all content regularly and will launch weekly feature stories highlighting productions locally and nationally that have provided us with this extra content.

BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight: Binghampton UniversityToday, we're thrilled to feature the Theatre Department at Binghampton University in New York!

The Theatre Department provides graduate and undergraduate curricula in the history, theory and practice of theater for liberal arts students as well as for students preparing for active competition in some aspects of the academic or professional theater.
Students in all disciplines are eligible to participate in theatre and dance activities in the department, whether or not they intend to major or actually declare a major in theatre.

The Binghamton University Theatre Department offers courses and degree BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight: Binghampton University programs for both a Bachelor of Arts and aMaster of Arts. Undergraduates concentrate in one of the following three areas: Acting/Directing, Dance or Design and Technical Theatre, while graduate students can concentrate on either Directing, Theory, Performance or Technical Production and Design; however graduate students are not required to choose a concentration.
