Students in this program are prepared for work in the contemporary theatre. With an ensemble philosophy as the foundation of the program, students major in one area of theatre while participating in all aspects of production, which broadens their knowledge base, creates an understanding and sensitivity to the whole theatre process, and often develops marketable skills outside of their major. 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.
