Theatre Arts

 

Theatre Arts Major

The Theatre Arts Major is based on a liberal arts curriculum that requires majors to fully participate in the undergraduate core, read extensively in the field, and acquire a solid and broad-based knowledge of the fundamental principles of the art form.

Theatre is a collaborative art and, while majors may specialize in one area of theatre arts (design, performance, literature, etc.) we believe that our students are best served by understanding all aspects of creative production. Designers who also act have a better sense of what the actor requires on the stage; actors who have studied design can better appreciate the production as a whole and more clearly understand their contribution to it.
