The Bachelor of Professional Studies in Musical Theatre is a pre-professional degree in music, theatre, and dance, with an emphasis on the essential integration of these elements. Our faculty creates an environment where aspiring musical theatre artists can begin a career and where powerful transformational experiences occur.
While we intend to generate young artists who can sing, dance, and act with technical ease and facility, a liberal arts-based education becomes a necessary tool for a performer. Critical, analytical, and independent thinking are essential qualities as they serve as the foundation of creative work. Also, a small class size is crucial so the individual attention from the faculty can be maintained as well as the monitoring of our students’ growth vocally, physically, and intellectually.
At Geneseo, students learn to work in ways that contribute positively to our art form, ccollaborating with fellow artists, and fostering a lasting appreciation for, and life in, the performing arts.
