The Bachelor of Fine Arts specialization in Design and Production builds a strong foundation of general knowledge pertaining to technical and design aspects of the theatre. Students have opportunities to build solid portfolios by completing main stage projects in their focus areas. Students choose from a range of courses, both introductory and advanced, from writing and drawing, to construction and sewing, while pursuing one of the following:
- Scenic Design and Technology
- Costume Design and Technology
- Lighting Design and Technology

- Stage and Production management
To further prepare for future employment or graduate school, all students are strongly encouraged to pursue practical experience through TH 490: Cooperative Education (Internship) and performance application courses, which allow students to put theory into practice as part of Central Theatre Ensemble's regular on-campus season.
