Bachelor of Performing Arts update

Posted on October 1, 2014

After three successful years at Capilano University, the Bachelor of Performing Arts degree completion program is on the move. The degree is a partnership between four academic arts institutions: Capilano University, Douglas College, Langara and Vancouver Community College and the next stop for the program is Douglas College.

The next cohort will begin May 2015. Audition dates are December 6, 2014 and January 17, 2015. If you are interested in learning more about the program or to apply, visit www.douglascollege.ca/bpa.


What BPA alumni are saying about this unique degree program:
“The BPA started out as just a fast-track to a degree, for me, but that is the absolute last thing on my list of accomplishments I took from the program. The creation, learning to express myself, working as a creative team all mean so much more to me than a degree (though I'm glad I have it!!).”

“I got accepted in the MA: Comparative Media Arts program at SFU!”

“Explore. Take chances. Listen ... your cohorts and professors will teach you so much about yourself and your art.”

“I'm currently working on my next CD. Life is very busy but I really believe a lot of this success is from the BPA. It really was those classes that helped me figure out what is necessary to be successful on your own terms. I see all the success my classmates are having and can't wait to see what the next few years have in store.”
