Theatre Arts Major

The major in theatre arts combines a liberal arts perspective with in-depth study of theatre in its historical and cultural contexts. At the core of the program is the belief that the best theatre artist is one who possesses both a broad knowledge of the theory and literature of the field and highly developed artistic skills. The major recognizes the importance of all aspects of theatre and offers courses and/or practical training in performance, technical theatre, design, directing, arts management, playwriting, and dramaturgy.

In the Theatre Arts program, you will:

  • Learn how to analyze plays perceptively and evaluate scripts and theatre productions critically.

  • Enhance your ability to think critically, speak eloquently, write effectively and work collaboratively.

  • Gain a greater awareness of the role, function and value of theatre in society.

  • Apply your experience, research and skills, under faculty direction, to conceive and/or execute a final project in acting, directing, criticism, playwriting or design.
