How to Apply
As one of only two programs accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST) in Western New York, Buffalo State offers students conservatory-style training in a bustling urban, liberal-arts setting. A Buffalo State theater graduate is prepared with professional experience and the skills necessary for rewarding careers in theater.
Prospective undergraduate students interested in majoring in theater must apply through the Undergraduate Admissions Office. Your admission to the Theater program is contingent upon a successful interview/audition. We also offer minors in theater and dance.
Spend the day with theater major and experience classes, rehearsals, meals, and more. Meet our faculty, tour our spaces, and meet with us to ask all of your questions.
Theater Student for a Day Program
Each fall semester, we dedicate a day filled with programming for visiting high school students. You'll attend classes with current students, participate in workshops with faculty, play games with our "Friday Night Live" improv troupe, and see a department production.
