Theatre Minor

About Us

As theatre examines the human condition, the program encourages students to explore complex connections between theatre and other studies in the liberal arts, the sciences and professional programs. We approach the study of theatre from the perspective that the best theatre artists are those who possess both a broad knowledge of the theory and literature of the field and highly developed artistic skills. The program recognizes the importance of all aspects of theatre and offers courses and practical training in acting, dance, technical theatre, design, directing, play writing, educational theatre and dramaturgy.
