Theatre And FILM PRODUCTION Program

The ATU Program in Theatre and Film Production offers a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a Theatre Option. This BA is a full 33-hour major to prepare students for a variety of careers including professional theatre, educational theatre, social media influencing, or other performance-related careers.

While ATU Theatre and Film embraces the technological side of performance creation, it acknowledges that training in traditional theatre provides valuable depth and substance to the work. Therefore, ATU offers a unique hybrid program that tackles traditional theatrical skills along with digital creation. This gives its students a competitive edge in the 21st century market.

For more information on the courses included in the program, please see the Undergraduate Course Catalog.
