THEATRE AND MEDIA ARTS

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.

Graduate Studies

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

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 non-majors.

Theatre Production History:
1898-2015

From the dawn of time, storytelling has been an integral part of our humanity. It is how we communicate, how we teach, how we learn, and how we preserve our heritage. It is something we all share regardless of race, age, ethnicity, or religion.

BYU Student Films

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.

Theatre & Media Arts Initiatives

The TMA Department has several initiatives that are tied to academic classes and are aimed at the improvement of Theatre and Media Arts education in the BYU program, in public schools, and in the family.

Our Mission

To promote literacy, creativity, and spirituality by exploring their interrelatedness in the arts of theatre and media, to illuminate and confirm truth and the infinite potential of the human soul.

Literacy

With a foundation in critical thinking, our programs offer opportunities to participate authentically in Theatre and Media Arts communities. Together we engage in creating, performing, producing and, responding using representational forms that are unique to our fields.

Creativity

With an emphasis on creativity, our programs invite curiosity and imagination in collaborative and mentored environments where students learn how to tell stories that illuminate human understanding in order to innovate and see anew.

Spirituality

With a commitment to developing infinite human potential, our programs explore truths of the human experience, generosity of soul, and our relationship with humanity and the divine through individual and shared theatre and media experiences.

The Theatre and Media Arts Department sponsors two London study abroad programs for students. London has a rich history of performing arts and wide ranging opportunities in film and theatre. Study abroad programs like these offer students a breadth of experience that will enrich their lives and learning.
