Real-World Skills

Students majoring in theatre arts will develop technical and artistic skills while engaging in critical thinking that reflects the historical foundations of the discipline as well as more current advances in theatrical training. Through traditional classroom instruction and collaborative production experience, students will enhance their abilities of observation, analysis, design, performance and artistry in order to better prepare themselves for their careers and lives beyond undergraduate training. Integration of faith is paramount as students learn to embrace a deeper understanding of their own humanity and the world at large.

Real-World Experiences

Majors will have the opportunity to develop their talents on stage and off through participation in our mainstage and lab seasons. Our students are challenged as they train with knowledgeable and experienced faculty and guest artists to create an entertaining, thought-provoking and diverse season of plays, musicals, student directed one-acts and studio productions. Theatre majors are also highly encouraged to participate in regional collegiate competitions as well as audition/interview for summer internships and professional summer stock companies.

Degree Options

The Department of Theatre Arts offers degree programs in General Theatre, Performance, and Design/Technology. All are broad-based majors designed to provide each student with a strong foundation for a career in theatre or continued training such as graduate programs, internships or other related fields of study.
