Theatre & Performing Arts Careers

Pursuing a Career in Theatre

Niagara University has a proud tradition of producing talented and versatile graduates from our B.F.A. program. As theatre is a specialized field, the theatre department has developed its own career resources, and provides  hands-on guidance  to its students. Some of the more common resources will be highlighted on this page, but we strongly suggest using the NU faculty and staff resources below for more specific  suggestions based on your career interests.
