Established in 1999, the Department of Performance Studies is the first department at Texas A&M solely devoted to the arts.
The Department offers a B.A. and minor in both Music and Theatre Arts. The B.A. in Music offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of music, with courses in composition, ethnomusicology, music history, music theory, music technology, and performance through various means. The B.A. in Theatre Arts provides training in the classroom and in an integrated theatre production program. The curriculum preparesstudents for professional theatre training programs and/or graduate work in the liberal and fine arts, teaching theatre in the secondary school, and a variety of careers in the professional arena or the world of business and industry.
Part of the greater unit of The College of Liberal Arts, the Department of Performance Studies prides itself on inter-disciplinary connections, first-rate theatrical performances and a high standard of degree courses for undergraduates & graduates alike.
