At UMBC we believe that theatre is an every-changing art form, responding to and creating new ideas that confront our ethical, political, and artistic ideas and practices. Degree programs leading to a B.F.A. in Acting, a B.A. in Theatre Studies, or a B.A. in Design/ Production provide students with the interdisciplinary skills to become actively engaged with their art and with the world around them. A dedicated faculty focuses on each student’s evolution as an artist and as a person, making the study of theatre at UMBC a life-changing experience that stimulates, challenges and inspires.
