NON-MAJORS

Some students may have a passion for theatre and media arts but do not want to pursue it as a career. Therefore the department has created many opportunities for non-majors.

Graduate Studies

The graduate program is a scholarly two-year degree that consists of a core of history and theory classes complemented by electives chosen by the student in conjunction with an advisor.

THEATRE ARTS

The Department of Theatre & Media Arts offers four different areas within the theatre arts programs: acting, music dance theatre, theatre arts education and theatre arts studies.

Media Arts Studies

The media arts studies program produces students with a strong liberal arts foundation that can be used in a variety of film-related careers or prepare them for graduate studies.

STUDENT FILMS | BYU

Brigham Young University has a long, rich history in the creation and education of film. BYU was one of the first universities to create a formal department for the production of motion pictures, which was founded in 1953. Currently, the BYU Media Arts Program and the Center for Animation have won more than 30 National and Regional Student Emmys in the past 12 years making BYU one of the most well-respected Film and Animation programs in the nation.

BLACK LIVES INITIATIVE
Theatre & Media Arts

Earlier this year, Brigham Young University established the BYU Committee on Race, Equity, and Belonging. This committee is “deeply committed to realizing the recent call to action and reflecting the united declaration of leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the NAACP that educational institutions ‘review processes, [policies], and organizational attitudes regarding racism and root them out’” (https://race.byu.edu/mission).
