The Theater Department offers an opportunity to pursue a serious study of the theater arts within a liberal arts setting. Courses within the department afford training in the basic demands of the discipline-physical and vocal control, technique in acting and directing, technical and design skills-as well as the opportunity for advanced study, practical production experience, and off-campus internships. The liberal arts requirements help the student to understand the moral, intellectual, and political context in which any artist practices.

All theater majors take certain basic courses in each of the department's areas of study. For the best possible training, students in the upper divisions are urged to concentrate in performance, directing, or design and technical theater. Students with specific interests that fall outside these concentrations may develop a specialized course of study in consultation with their advisors and the department. Such interest might include playwriting, special studies in dramatic theory and criticism, theater management, or arts administration.
