Directing (B.F.A.)

This BFA program develops skills as a director through experiences in the classroom and performance laboratory. Directing majors benefit from Nebraska Wesleyan's active production schedule and opportunities to direct shows can begin as early as the second semester of their sophomore year. We also encourage directing majors to work closely with faculty and guest artists as members of the production team, assistant directors, and stage managers.
