The Theatre Program and Drama Major is a combination of practical and academic streams that offers a well-rounded perspective on the discipline. The Theatre Program gives students the opportunity to explore whether they have the level of talent and determination necessary to pursue a professional career in theatre. Theatre studies also prepares students for careers in the electronic media, public relations, education, law, social work and recreation.
Degree and Course Options
The Theatre Program offers a general and an Advanced Drama Major, comprising Theatre courses and selected courses in English and Film Studies; these Majors are valuable preparation for further theatre studies, including graduate work in an academic setting, or practical, professional training in an M.F.A. program or at a theatre school. The Theatre Minor is an excellent complement for an English major, a Film Studies major, or a major in any of the humanities or social sciences. Theatre courses, as options, are particularly valuable to students in Music and Fine Arts, and to some students in Human Ecology. Theatre courses are required for majors or minors in Drama in Education; students in Education are referred to that Faculty for further information.
