Program Information

School:Capilano University
Faculty:Faculty of Fine & Applied Arts - School of Performing Arts
Field of Study:Visual and Performing Arts, General
Description:The Bachelor of Performing Arts (BPA) program is unique in Canada. Co-administered by Capilano University and Douglas College, nowhere else in the country have two academic arts institutions partnered to offer an interdisciplinary performing arts degree that has a commitment to collaboration and self-generation – elements which are crucial to young artists’ future success.

The 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 BPA is designed to address a gap in most performing arts education: serious consideration of how students will develop the means to put their training to use once they graduate.
