Theater Management Track

In the bachelor of science (B.S.) degree program you’ll enjoy a balance of drama department classes, liberal arts, and other academic courses. The theater management track is the only one of our B.S. tracks to which you can apply as a new student. It will prepare you for a variety of careers, including producing, marketing and public relations, casting, development, and general management. It will also provide you with the chance to develop widely transferable management skills. Working in direct partnership with professionals at Syracuse Stage, you will gain firsthand knowledge of a professional theater company’s operations.

Other B.S. in Drama Tracks

After gaining admission to, and completing a portion of, one of the bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) degree programs (acting, musical theater, stage management, or theater design and technology), you may decide that you want to pursue other academic interests. Several other tracks in the B.S. program-including playwriting and directing, which are more broadly focused than the B.F.A. programs-enable you to tailor the curriculum to your individual interests and to pursue a minor
