Musical Theatre, Bachelor of Arts (BA)
This is a new Musical Theater BA created by integrating the current Music and Theater resources. The departments will collaborate to provide EWU students with a comprehensive degree.
There is a high demand for Musical Theater training in the state of Washington and beyond. This is a performance degree program, and students will develop acting, singing, and dancing skills. This collaboration will serve students as the only university-level musical theater degree program in the Inland Northwest region. The program combines the rigor of both the music and the theater programs in providing the highest quality Musical Theater training. Future collaborations in technology arts and audio engineering will be incorporated as we employ contemporary practices in musical theater productions.
Note: two years of a single high school foreign language or one year of a single college level foreign language is required.
