Offered on campus
Theatre is a liberal art that engenders a synthesis of critical and creative thinking that is supportive to lifelong learning and personal excellence in any field. Through classroom study and production experience, students are encouraged to develop an individual point of view and aesthetic expression through theatrical collaboration. Interdisciplinary by nature, the theatre degree program offers an excellent and well-rounded liberal arts education. Students are encouraged to produce contemporary and classic works of relevance to their unique audience, to promote and contribute to the vitality of the arts in our region, and to honor the remarkable cultural diversity of our constituency through civic engagement. Theatre majors are prepared for entry-level technical theatre, design, and performance positions. Students are prepared for acceptance into competitive Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) and Master of Arts (M.A.) theatre programs.
