The BFA in Design/Technology remains one of the finest undergraduate programs in the region. Under the supervision of ten faculty and staff, students receive individualized attention in small studio classes and lectures. Training in three major areas of design and technology: scenic, costume and lighting is emphasized. Courses and practical work in sound design, prop construction, makeup and wig design are also offered.
Theatre VCU is rare amongst college and university training programs in that it provides opportunities for accomplished undergraduate students to actualize their designs on the mainstage. Theatre VCU undergraduate design students frequently win design competitions in all three areas of concentration.
