Theatre Arts

This program provides a strong foundation in acting, directing, design, history, literature, and theory. Majors complete six core courses, five upper-level classes in performance and design/production, six theatre practicums, and a two-part examination that includes a written test and a Senior Project.

Students can apply for an intensive theatre program in New York City, where they study voice and speech, acting, movement, playwriting, directing, design, dance, and stage management in one of the world’s most prominent theatre capitals.
