The University of Tulsa is not accepting applications or matriculating new undergraduate students into the bachelor’s program in theatre beyond the Fall 2019 term. Students who have matriculated into the bachelor’s program may not declare theatre as a major after the Spring 2020 term.
Theatre majors are required to audition and participate in production work by enrolling in THEA 1220 for seven semesters.
Following a successful audition or portfolio/interview at the end of their freshman year, theatre students choose 21 hours from among the three areas listed below. Students may pursue an emphasis in design/technical theatre or performance by taking all electives in a single area or discipline. Students interested in an emphasis in stage management, playwriting, or general studies in preparation for graduate programs in directing or choreography follow a prescribed combination of electives from all three areas.
Students seeking secondary teacher certification in theatre should consult their academic advisors to determine subject area courses that are appropriate and the Oklahoma State Department of Education regarding alternative certification.
