About Coastal Carolina University

The Coastal Carolina University Theatre department houses four BFA concentrations: Acting, Musical Theatre, Physical Theatre, and Design and Production. It also houses a BA in Theatre and a minor in Dramatic Arts.

  • Designed to prepare future actors for professional theatre, the Acting concentration in the BFA in Theatre Arts focuses on helping you develop the skills and professionalism required for a successful career. The program accepts students who are willing and able to commit to structured, intensive, studio-based training and are searching for a strong acting center to their work both on stage and in front of the camera.
  • Designed to train future musical theatre actors for a professional career, the BFA in Theatre Arts, Musical Theatre concentration focuses on building and honing the skills required for a life in the professional theatre. The program seeks students who are able to excel in an environment that demands disciplined, rigorous, studio-based training.
  • Physical theater has recently enjoyed a renaissance. Dozens of theaters now specialize in physical theater performance, which has created a need for training programs. Internationally there are a number of undergraduate training programs for the physical theater artist, but Coastal Carolina University offers one of the only BFA concentrations in Physical Theatre in the United States.
  • The Design and Production concentration in the Theatre Arts BFA program prepares you for a professional career as a theater designer, artisan, stage manager, or technician. This intensive program of theater studies involves a high degree of specialization and offers a balance of classwork and contribution through production.
  • A Theatre Bachelor of Arts or Dramatic Arts minor allows you to develop a more general course of study than the BFA programs. Choose classes from a variety of areas including performance, design, theater criticism, and theatre history to provide a foundation for a well-balanced course of study.
