The Blue Masque

logo_bluemasque.jpgYou have a unique opportunity to be a part of the educational process.

The brilliance of young stars each season is the direct result of the Theatre Arts Department's degree programs. Catawba theatre arts students are able to choose from several viable degree programs, depending on the individual need of the student.

Students elect to major in one of the Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A) degree programs (specializing in either performance, design and production, or musical theatre); the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree program in theatre arts administration; or seek to examine the breadth of theatre through the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree programs (musical theatre, theatre arts education, or theatre arts).

These varied, but equally effective, degree programs recognize the need of today's student for thorough professional preparation, encased in an institution which upholds the tenets and traditions of a liberal arts education.
