George Mason University

The BA degree stresses the breadth of a liberal arts education in the belief that such study, combined with serious practical training and experience, offers the best preparation for a life in theater and screen.

Students complete the theater core. To organize their advance work within the major, students elect a course of study from five concentrations:

  • Performance (Acting and Directing)
  • Design and Technical Theater
  • Playwriting and Dramaturgy
  • Theater Education for Theater Arts PK-12
  • Theater Studies

Undergraduates in Theater may apply to the accelerated master’s degree in Arts Management. If accepted, students will be able to earn a BA in Theater and an MA in Arts Management after satisfactory completion of 150 credits.

Students choosing the accelerated option must fulfill all university requirements for the master’s degree. The regular designed timeframe would be a start in the Fall and the completion in the Summer five years later, but longer time frames may also be available.
