The Bachelor of Performing Arts is currently undergoing a program redesign. It is suspended until further notice.

The one-of-a-kind BPA degree-completion program provides the unique opportunity to achieve a bachelor's degree in one additional year of study. Get the latest information about the upcoming relaunch of the BPA by joining our contact list below.

Expanding upon previous training and/or an existing performance practice, the BPA engages students with the aesthetic, conceptual, formal, cultural and practical aspects of performance creation across multiple mediums.
