BFA in Performing Arts

Why a BFA in Performing Arts?

Our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Performing Arts uniquely prepares you for a multi-discipline, multi-platform entertainment landscape. The most successful individuals in today’s marketplace tend to move between performance areas of various types (film, television, voiceover, theatre, and more) with ease. Through the BFA in Performing Arts, you will have in-depth training in each of these mediums, with the option of specializing in the areas that interest you the most — all contributing to a well-developed portfolio.

Cross-Training Approach

What sets Huntington University’s BFA in Perfoming Arts degree apart is its cross-training approach. The typical BFA requires you to choose one primary area of focus with little opportunity to gain experience in other areas. HU’s program trains you in three to four distinct areas of performance and gives you experience with a variety of performance mediums so you are comfortable in front of an audience, in front of a camera, and in front of a microphone.
