Course work in BFA Puppetry Program includes intensive study in the practice of puppetry as a theatrical art form. The program offers an intensive curriculum in puppet construction and manipulation in a variety of mediums and styles. Students are also encouraged to explore and develop their own techniques and individual performance pieces. In addition to a broad-based curriculum in theatre studies, students work under the direction of a faculty member to help operate the Puppet Mobile which tours the region with productions providing hands-on experience and additional performance opportunities.
