Ball State University Department of Theatre and Dance offers seven diverse degree options that emphasize developing and nurturing each student's creativity, curiosity, and collaborative skills. We inspire our students to be thinkers, responsible citizens, and motivated theatre artists who will make a difference in creating the next generation's voice.
Our undergraduate-only program, low student-to-faculty ratio, hands-on advising and mentoring from a faculty of working professionals, and distinguished guest artists in all disciplines allow for the personal development of each artist as an individual.
We offer B.F.A. degrees in Acting, Dance, and Musical Theatre, and B.A./B.S. degrees in Design and Technology, Directing/Stage Management, Theatre Education and Theatrical Studies.
The department is an active award-winning participant in KCACTF, SETC and USITT. Our degrees are fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre and National Association of Schools of Dance.
