The Drama Field of Study Curriculum is designed for students seeking a bachelor’s degree with a major in General Drama & Dramatics/Theatre Arts, Acting, or Musical Theater. There are three tracks: a General Track, a Performance Track, and a Design/Technical Track. Note that these tracks do not apply to Bachelor of Fine Arts programs.
