Theater, B.A.

About the Program: 

The Theater Department introduces students to all aspects of theater and the entertainment industries. The theater season includes both faculty- and student-directed productions presented on campus. These productions are attended by members of both the college and the community. Through advisement, students may focus their studies in the following concentrations: acting, directing/dramaturgy, design/technical, and general study. The department also emphasizes direct application of theater skills beyond the stage in the form of various outreach projects. High standards afford a foundation for careers in professional theater, television, and film. A 19-credit-hour minor program in theater is also available.
