Applied Theatre

Major, Minor

Apply traditional skills, tools and values of the theatre arts to civic engagement, public health, and the community in this service- and career-oriented program.

Students build a strong foundation in the liberal arts, study traditional theatre, and put their talents and training to work in residencies with underserved populations and service settings. The applied theatre program has a strong future focus, offering students a network of professional pathways, as they connect to the professional theatre world, local social service organizations, and the community. Students intern with senior centers, youth centers, arts administration organizations or other non-profits.
