Theatre and Media Arts
THEATRE AND MEDIA ARTS OVERVIEW
BYU’s theatre programs—Theatre Arts Studies, Theatre Arts Education, and Acting—invite students to explore the possibilities theatre provides for collaboration, citizenship, service, and faith-promotion. The programs emphasize the balance between practical theatre training and critical thinking. They provide extensive opportunities for production in classroom settings, workshops, and fully-mounted productions both at BYU and at external venues.
The BYU Media Arts Studies program is designed to educate students on a foundation of film history, theory, and criticism, along with fundamental production competencies. Possible areas of emphasis include critical studies, fiction production and non-fiction production.
The BFA in Music Dance Theatre (MDT) is an interdisciplinary degree offered by the College of Fine Arts and Communications through the cooperative involvement of its Department of Dance, School of Music, and Department of Theatre and Media Arts
