At Quinnipiac, our students learn from professionals. Our BA in Theater is purposefully designed with a great deal of flexibility early on. This encourages students to explore all areas of theater. In the final two years of the program, students are asked to focus their goals into one or two specific areas. During this time, theater students take advanced level courses in their area, participate in professional internships, and complete an individualized senior capstone.
Notable Alumni Include:
