The Theatre major enables students to fully explore their potential as productive, literate, articulate, and humane members of society through a close study of the theory and practice of theatre. Students so trained are able to bring highly developed communication skills, flexibility, and creativity to a wide range of graduate school and career opportunities.
The academic program in the Department of Theatre includes experiential classroom learning and intensive guest artist engagements. It is supported by an innovative and broad production program, which is the cornerstone of the department, and a wide variety of internship opportunities. Performing, research, technical theatre, and administrative opportunities are open to all students. Auditions and technical theatre interviews are held at the beginning of each term. Participation in productions is considered an academic endeavor with course credit available.
There are four options within the Theatre major: Arts Administration, Design and Technical Theatre, Performance and Directing, and Theatre Generalist. A minor in Theatre is available to students majoring in other disciplines.
