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.
