If your goal is to become a professional performing artist, arts manager, administrator or entrepreneur, or if you plan to do graduate studies in the performing arts, we've got the perfect program for you. 

Douglas College, along with Capilano University, Langara College and Vancouver Community College, offers a Bachelor of Performing Arts (BPA) degree – the only degree of its kind in Canada.

Now in its second year, the BPA is designed for students and working professionals with a significant background in dance, music, film arts, stagecraft, theatre, arts and entertainment management, musical theatre or digital media. The nine-month program focuses on collaboration, entrepreneurship and creative development.

"If you are ready to face a new and exciting future, take control of your life, and make theatre that has meaning to you, you need to talk to us about the Bachelor of Performing Arts Degree," says Stuart Aikins, Program Coordinator. "There is no training program of its equal in Canada."
