MISSION STATEMENT: The Duane G. Meyer Library proudly supports the curriculum needs of the BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) degree programs at Missouri State*. We strive to maintain a well-balanced and comprehensive core book and video collection within the library, while also selecting and providing access to remote and global resources that support research and performance needs throughout our university and regional community. 

*There are four BFA options available to students: acting; musical theater; dance; and design, technology and stage management. Students may also opt for either a BA or BS with a major in theater and a minor in a secondary area of study.
