Bachelor of Arts in Theatre The Ohio State University


Course info


The Department of Theatre at The Ohio State University is dedicated to the education and training of theatre artists, scholars and teachers in an atmosphere conducive to creative scholarship and performance. Students in the theatre program develop and create new performance work while maintaining connections to theatre history through productions of classic, modern and contemporary texts.

The department offers the citizens of Ohio, the United States and the international community opportunities for theatre education and production through courses, institutes, productions, lectures and consultation. The department also provides opportunity for all members of the Ohio State community students, faculty, staff and alumni to participate in theatre as practitioner or as audience member.

Career Prospects in Theatre

Persons who graduate with a degree in theatre are found in just about all walks of life. Most people assume that the theatre profession is limited to actors who specialize in performing on stage, on television or in films. The truth is, there are many professional positions including designers, stage managers, technicians, audience education specialists, box office managers, marketing and development personnel, and arts administrators that involve theatre expertise. These positions are not just found in regional, summer stock and other theatre venues. People with theatre expertise are sought after in theme parks, museums, schools and educational institutions, digital media companies, and throughout the entertainment industry.

Competition is intense in most theatre positions, but those who are willing to work hard, develop the proper skills and stay open to creative possibilities can find meaningful employment in the theatre or the broader cultural sector. Graduate programs in theatre offering a Master of Fine Arts or PhD degree are open to those with a theatre undergraduate degree to further their education and to become more specialized in the field.
