B.S. Entertainment Production

The Entertainment Production program focuses on professional design concepts, technologies, and management skills for the event and entertainment industry. This program is designed to educate students in the knowledge and skills that create the visual, lighting, projection, show control technology, designing and constructing sets, audio and special effects that audiences have come to expect in performances, venues and entertainment. Our primary venue for experiential learning is the Gracie Theatre.  The Entertainment Production program can prepare students for positions in theatres, concert and athletic venues, cruise ships and trade shows that now feature theatrical effects to grab the attention of the audience.
