The Bachelor of Arts degree program of study in Theatre combines both the theory and practice of this collaborative art form. The curriculum offers courses in the doing of theatre design, acting, playwriting, directing and production work, along with the study of aesthetic theory, theater history and other conceptual and theoretical topics.
The curriculum is designed to give the Theatre Major a firm grounding in all aspects of theatre, while giving each student the opportunity to focus on a particular aspect of study (e.g. acting, design, dramaturgy), by the end of one’s senior year. Study abroad opportunities are encouraged, as is the opportunity to do a Senior Honors Thesis, which can have a performance, creative, or scholarly focus.
