BA in Theatre
The mission of the Bachelor of Arts in Theatre is to provide support and training to students who wish to concentrate their energies on theatre activities in all walks of life. The program includes both practical training and the opportunity to explore the broader philosophical and social issues facing the world today. Theatre skills include presentational skills needed by leaders in business, teachers, politicians and many other career professionals who deal in persuasion and consensus-building. Technical skills can be applied to all forms of dramatic presentation: television, film, and staged productions of all kinds, including political rallies. It is the aim of the theatre program to provide students with the skills and intellectual competence that will lead to success on the world of theatre and the broader world of human interaction.
Our commitment to civic engagement leads us to work with the community in our teacher education and social change classes, perform with the Environmental Science Symposium and bring speakers on the topic of diversity to campus. Our university-wide project to internationalize the disciplines manifests itself in study abroad theatre programs, international speakers, global theatre study and a goal toward responsible world citizenry.
