The BroadwayWorld Student Center is a comprehensive Student Database listing college and university performing arts programs across the country making it easier for prospective students by showcasing programs searchable by schools, location, degrees and concentrations.
The Student Center also offers a show calendar of college and high-school productions where schools can upload photos, videos, cast lists, articles and other media content for each of their shows. BWW will be combing through all content regularly and will launch weekly feature stories highlighting productions locally and nationally that have provided us with this extra content.
Today, we're thrilled to shine our spotlight on Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pennsylvania!
The mission of the performing arts majors at Cedar Crest College is to encourage and develop individual artists, to prepare students for future study in the performing arts, and to make available multiple perspectives in dance, theatre, creative writing and music through experiential work, foundational information and skills for all students and offer individual mentoring of advanced students.
The Performing Arts department at Cedar Crest College offers Bachelor of Arts degrees in Theatre and Dance as well as a minors option in both disciplines. Read a summary of each program below!
