Bachelor of Performing Arts Degree

Bachelor of Performing Arts Degree

Please note: the Bachelor of Performing Arts (BPA) program is currently on hiatus. 

The Bachelor of Performing Arts (BPA) program is offered by Capilano University and Douglas College. The program is a degree completion program (fourth year) that is currently being hosted at Capilano University.

Graduates of Langara's Diploma in Theatre Arts (Acting) are eligible to apply for admission to this program. Graduates of Theatre Arts (Production) are also eligible after completing additional post-secondary credits.

The BPA program's primary objective is real-world training. It is ideal for those who want to practice as a professional performing artist, arts manager, administrator, or cultural entrepreneur, or those who wish to continue on to graduate studies in the performing arts. The program offers students the unique opportunity to create original multi-disciplinary shows while developing the entrepreneurial skills necessary to make a self-directed performing arts career feasible.

The program runs May – January, with classes during the summer and fall semesters, and the capstone Interdisciplinary Production (project) each January.
