Students in this program are prepared for work in the contemporary theatre. Acting, theatre production, playwriting and stage direction are explored, as are theatre's classical roots and developing trends. Dance and Movement courses are offered to augment skills, competencies and academic programs.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of productions:
- Student Productions: Theatre students have an opportunity to direct/produce a variety of plays. Productions are generally staged in the department's Black Box Theatre.
- Acting, directing and playwrighting showcases: These showcases give students the opportunity to apply their course work in public performances.
- Street theatre performance: Street theatre is held each year during Family Weekend.
