Program of Study - Theatre
Theatre is an exploration of what it means to be human. The study of theatre will enable you to develop your understandings and appreciations of human nature, interaction, struggle, and achievement, and to communicate those understandings and appreciations effectively through the medium of the stage. This program is designed to provide you with the ability to practice theatre in an informed and thoughtful manner, by equipping you with both the practical and theoretical skills for effective participation and leadership in professional, semi-professional, community, and church theatre.
One of the significant advantages of our theatre program is its flexibility. If you are interested in focusing mainly on theatre, you can take a Theatre Major. However, if you would like to study theatre and also want to prepare for another career path, you can take a Theatre Minor along with another area of study of your choice. For example, current students and graduates have combined their theatre studies with other programs as follows:
For specific details, see the program options document and the program requirements for Theatre Majors and Minors below.
All students, regardless of academic program, are welcome to audition in September and to register for introductory theatre and acting classes.
All students in degree programs are required to take a minimum of courses in a variety of general arts and sciences so as to enable them to acquire an adequate foundation and context for their chosen area of studies, and to develop a critical appreciation of scholarship in general.
Biblical and Theological Studies establish anchor points for effective Christian thinking, living, and serving in the church and in society. The Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences deepen the understanding and heighten the appreciation of human nature, thoughts, cultures, and societies. Music and Theatre foster the musical and dramatic expression of the human spirit, condition, and experience.
