Majoring in Theatre Arts involves the study of theatrical works and their production. How can breathing and rhythm influence acting performances? How are the methods of creative dramatics applied in church settings? How are musical theatre performances choreographed? You’ll explore theatre history, playwriting, acting, and directing, as well as lighting, scenery and costume design, as you take 44 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree.
You’ll also experience real learning beyond the classroom, with opportunities for involvement in major theatre productions, workshop dramas and various experimental undertakings during the academic year. Because we design our theatre arts program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant major if you’re considering a career as an actor, director, theatre manager, technical director, stage manager, set designer, scene shop supervisor, playwright, multimedia artist and animator, lighting designer, dancer, costume designer, choreographer or other performance professional.
