Why Major in Theatre Arts at PBA?
At PBA, you’ll enhance your acting skills for both stage and screen and musical theatre, preparing you for a successful career. PBA theatre majors spend between 65-66 credit hours in their concentration, which enables us to offer more extensive and specialized B.A. training than is generally available at other universities.
From major theatre, TV and film production in South Florida to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and TV production in Orlando, the state of Florida has enormous hiring opportunities for actors.
“All my experiences and opportunities had me engaging with folks who were students all the way up to donors and Trustee members. I learned how to present myself professionally, as well as how to work hard and collaborate with others.”
