All candidates for the BA degrees must complete a series of general education courses required by the university. The USC Core and General Education Program has been designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to be informed citizens of the 21st century, who understand its challenges and participate in the debates of their time. It requires eight courses in six Core Literacies, plus two courses in Global Perspectives (which may double-count with courses in the Core Literacies) and two courses in writing. All BA students must also meet a foreign-language requirement.
For complete curriculum requirements, please visit the USC Catalogue for the BA, Theatre major or for the BA, Theatre with an emphasis in Acting; BA, Theatre with an emphasis in Comedy; and BA, Theatre with an emphasis in Design.
