actors on a stark stage

"When I site alone in a theatre and gaze into the dark space of its empty stage, I'm frequently seized by fear that this time I won't manage to penetrate it, and I always hope that this fear will never desert me. Without an unending search for the key to the secret of creativity, there is no creation."   -Josef Svoboda

Design Tech

Are you creative, curious, a problem solver, and do you have a passion for theatre? Then, we have a place for you in our BFA Theatre Design and Technology program.

The Auburn University Theatre Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design and Technology offers you a practical foundation in all areas of theatre production: scenic, lighting, sound, costume and property design, technical direction, and construction.  As a BFA student, you will receive hands-on opportunities to explore interdisciplinary possibilities, apply new technical and conceptual knowledge, and learn both in the classroom and through production work.   BFA students also enjoy opportunities to work with national and international guest artists and travel nationally and internationally to attend workshops and exhibit work.

Auburn’s BFA in tech and design will help you build a foundation for a career, not only in theatre, but in related fields such as film, television, themed attractions, and concert tours.
