Theatre Design and Technology (B.F.A.)

This BFA program develops your technical and design skills through experiences in the classroom and performance laboratory.

As you acquire skills and knowledge through classroom and practical experiences, you will progress to supervised design application.

In recent years, our BFA students have participated in an average of six productions per year. Theatre design and technology majors benefit from the wealth of opportunities available through Nebraska Wesleyan's active production schedule.

We also encourage design and technical majors to work closely with faculty as members of the production team and in stage management.
