DA/TH 498 BFA Project Guidelines
The BFA Project represents a formal capstone opportunity for the BFA candidate in
the Conservatory of Theatre and Dance at Southeast Missouri State University. Its
purpose is to demonstrate the skills graduating students will need as they go on to
the next phase of their career in theatre and dance. The project should demonstrate
excellence from conception through completion and thus demands the full engagement
of both the candidate and his/her advisors and faculty committee. Projects may emphasize
performance, choreography (including fight choreography), design, stage management,
or technical direction.

Southeast Missouri State University and are within the chosen project discipline)
with a minimum 3.0 GPA.
