Why study Theatre BFA - Design/Technology Concentration at UB?

The BFA in Theatre with a Design & Technology concentration is for students interested in developing specific skills and who are willing to commit to structured, intensive, studio-based training. In the classroom, you learn to recognize your inspiration, analyze it, connect it to the script and communicate your vision. In the Center for the Arts you work with professionals to realize those ideas through the execution of the production process. Student designers, technicians and stage managers work side by side with faculty directors and designers and with the CFA staff. Our program provides students with challenging and sophisticated opportunities to learn in the classroom and to apply that learning through the actual process of designing and building departmental productions in a variety of venues.
