The Performing Arts Studies program prepares artists and leaders for a diverse and challenging job market and, through an integrated curriculum, trains practitioners in the field to impact the development and welfare of their community through viable arts experiences. Five areas of performing arts are the focus of this major: artistic direction, performance, arts management, technical theatre and cultural, critical and historical perspectives. This array of choices means you can foster whatever artistic interest you have, from on stage to off stage to above the stage! Your courses will range from basic acting to costume design to private voice to directing, and through it all you’ll be surrounded by fellow artists, both students and professors.
Notable Alumni Include: Donnie Sanders, Todd Morgan, Dr Jeannie Farthing Gambill, Suzanne Evans
