Our Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with a concentration in musical theatre will help you perfect your technique, encourage your creative spirit and give you a chance to shine. Our faculty share decades of real-world stage experience and will train you to become a true “triple threat.”
Our fresh, cutting-edge curriculum will help you build skills in voice production, technique and interpretation, musicianship, sight-singing, acting and movement, and various styles of dance including ballet, modern, tap, jazz and period. Our curriculum is designed to prepare you to work professionally or successfully advance into graduate programs, preparing you for a comprehensive career in the performing arts. Students work on their craft while remaining rooted in a liberal arts education—which is essential for success in the business today.
Musical theatre is the best of both worlds at YHC. Our students are active in both the Music and Theatre departments, and even have the option of minoring in Dance. Our students collaborate across disciplines, creating an awareness of all facets of the field. The departments within the division—and across campus—work together so you get consistent training and continued support to hone your craft.

You’re also encouraged to participate in vocal ensembles, such as the Young Harris College Choir and a cappella groups Southern Harmony and the Compulsive Lyres, and music ensembles, such as the YHC Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble, Pep Band, Concert Band, Guitar Ensemble and Piano Ensemble.
