Theatre and Electronic Media Performance—BA

Lights, Camera, Action!

Enroll in the theatre and electronic media performance program (SEMP) at Michigan Tech and take center stage. You will have plenty of opportunities to hone your performance skills, not only with stage productions, but also with radio and TV commercials, video-game design, and sound projects. This program integrates studies in traditional theatre and electronic media performance, making our graduates well-rounded performers qualified to work in theatre, film, video, digital arts, video-game voice-over, and more. Actors typically earn half of their living outside the theatre—and a diverse skill set means more job prospects.

  • At Michigan Tech, you will start performing from day one. Through the First-Year Practicum, you can get involved with an audio play, join a mainstage production, or work on a media project.
  • You will develop your skills through high-tech training at performance venues such as the beautiful Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts and the black box McArdle Theatre.
  • You will log significant time on the stage and in the studio—more than what is required by many comparable programs.
  • The department’s computer lab is equipped with the latest entertainment-dedicated programs.
  • Limited enrollment allows for more time with professors, advisors, and equipment.
