Department: Theatre


The Department of Theatre offers students the opportunity to study all aspects of the art form: the making, history, and theory of theatre and drama. Theatre courses include acting, playwriting, directing, design, history, theory, puppetry, interdisciplinary performance and more. The curriculum was developed with an emphasis on professional standards within a liberal arts context. Majors are involved in practical, hands-on production work.

What can I do with my degree in Theatre?

Many students who graduate from the program work as actors, directors, stage managers, technicians, designers and producers. Some of our students continue their creative study in conservatory or MFA programs. Others continue their study in history and theory as MA or PhD students. Graduates who concentrate in developmental drama frequently enter the field as teachers and directors of theatre in education.
