BA Theatre Generalist


The theatre generalist degree offers a broad spectrum of courses to prepare you for multiple careers. The coursework for this degree includes acting, technical work, theatre history, management skills, directing, and more. There are no audition or portfolio requirements for this degree. There is ample opportunity to choose electives from the theatre catalog to customize your program of study.

You will meet with an advisor at least once a semester. This is an informal time to review your degree checksheet, plan your classes and talk about your experience at ASU. Additional advisor visits are optional. During your junior year there is an interview with several faculty to make sure you are on a successful path and to explore career options and short and long-term goals.
