Pursue your dreams, while preparing for numerous career paths in the theatre! A Theatre major develops performance and production skills including acting, directing, and design. Theatre Majors are students of writing and performance in the world of Theatre. Students take courses that develop a working knowledge of the History of Theatre, Contemporary Drama, and Playwriting. Students have the opportunity to explore the Theatre outside of the textbook by studying Stage and Lighting Design, Make-up, and Directing. Students also work together to construct each school production, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary pieces, musicals to comedies, and are encouraged to participate in collegiate level speech and theatre competitions.
The Theatre major prepares students to pursue a professional career in Theatre or continue to graduate studies in theatre. Previous graduates have also begun successful careers in theatre education, English education, and theatre management.
