The UAB Department of Theatre offers two majors, a minor, and an honors program for qualified students -- in addition to specialized studies in Film.

Our Bachelor of Fine Arts majors are selected from competitive auditions and enter an intensive study for a BFA in Musical Theatre.

Our Bachelor of Arts majors may choose from three concentrations -- sometimes called "tracks" or "areas of emphasis." All three of these concentrations share a common 30-hour core drawn from our extensive course offerings.

We try to keep this information as accurate and current as possible,
but it is no substitute for consultation with your advisor.
