Theatre

Major, Minor

Perform, design, write plays, direct and study the literature and history of the world of theatre.

Students may major in theatre — including a unique Applied Theatre program that investigates the use of theater in community service, health or political contexts — or simply participate in courses and shows.

Work with guest directors and instructors from the theatre world and participate in two main stage productions each year, plus student-produced LunchBox season performances. Take advanced classes on such specialized topics as gender and performance and playwriting. Apply for talent scholarships to potentially receive $4,000 to $6,000 per year.
