Description of Theatre
Theatre is a creative art in which true excellence can only be achieved through total mastery of the mind, body and technical craft. The
Theatre Arts curricula combine rigorous studio class work with a demanding production schedule to provide students with in depth
training and practice in theatre. Undergraduate training options include acting, scenic, costume and lighting design, theatre and
costume technology, and production and management training. First year students learn a foundation in theatre and its history,
expository writing, art history and receive a specially designed theatre course relating to the student's area of interest. Students begin
intensive theatre study as sophomores. The continued development of the visual media is expanding the volume of opportunities for
majors in theatre. Networking, job experience, internships and expertise in your specialty are paramount to success.
