It is the responsibility of the scenic designer to collaborate with the director and develop the conceptual ideas that will inform the look and functionality of the scenic design.

The scenic designer must work closely with other members of the design team and communicate clearly—through technical drawings, color elevations, scale models, color renderings, and research—all the information necessary to realize the scenic design. Working with the director, the other designers, the technical director, and other members of the production staff, the scenic designer must develop a cohesive design that provides an effective setting for the production.

In addition to meeting general degree requirements, all undergraduate theatre design/technology majors concentrating in scenic design must complete the following requirements (99 credits). ACT 1250 (freshman year) and ACT 2100 may be counted toward the liberal arts requirement (30 credits minimum) for the BFA.

Freshman Year: 25 credits

The freshman year requirements are the same for all undergraduate theatre design/technology majors.

Sophomore Year: 30 credits

Junior Year: 25 credits

Senior Year: 19 credits
