About the Program Theatre (BFA/BA)
A well-rounded study of Theatre involves traditional classroom research as well as practical applications in performance and production. Work in the major is balanced between classes in theatre history, workshop-style classes in acting and directing, and hands-on classes in stagecraft and lighting. The student can pursue either acting or technical tracks.
Students selecting to major or minor in Theatre will find a program both diverse and practical in nature. The program integrates academic coursework and practical workshops with an active, professional caliber production schedule, which includes two mainstage productions a year and a variety of student projects.
The Theatre curricula combine history, theory and practice while also providing opportunities to develop individual talents and interests. Study in Theatre serves as an excellent preparation for professional careers and continued education not only in theatre but also in the fields of teaching, law, politics, communication, sales and management. For non-majors, the Theatre program includes experience and courses in fundamental methods and content.
