Pace School of Performing Arts’ Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Production and Design for Stage and Screen is an intensive pre-professional degree focused on training young designers and craftspeople for the entertainment industry. Our goal is to graduate critically engaged and technologically sophisticated students in the fields of scenery, costumes, stage management, lighting, and sound. Pace School of Performing Arts’ Production and Design major allows the young artist to hone his or her craft in an extensive array of courses devoted to technique. Your work will be grounded in a solid understanding in the history of the art form. You will discover how to think like a designer in engaging and challenging studio classes. A New Approach The BFA Production and Design major begins with a core group of classes that emphasize the fundamentals of all design disciplines. Students then move into an area of emphasis in scenery, costumes, lighting, sound, or media by the end of their second year. The advanced level studio and technique classes allow you to focus your course-work with classes in drafting, costume construction, lighting techniques and many more. These courses are paired with an innovative study of the historical and contemporary trends in drama and design. You’ll even take an acting class to understand how performers relate to design. The Design and Production major is a rigorous major that prepares students for work in the professional industry but also for a lifetime of creative exploration. Incoming students should expect a difficult but rewarding experience in which setbacks are seen as fundamental to the art-making process.
