The theatre is for everyone!  

Anyone can declare a theatre major. You’ll gain skills in adaptability, collaboration, problem solving, communication, time management, analysis, creativity and social awareness. These skills will transfer to any career – inside and outside the arts.  

The theatre major is designed to develop theatre practitioners of the future. You’ll study everything from acting to design, from directing to playwriting. You’ll encounter ideas, theories and techniques that will help you achieve excellence in your profession.  

You can choose to study Theatre (B.A.) or select one of the focus areas.  

You can also minor in Theatre

We often bring in visiting actors, writers and directors for you to work with.  

You’ll have the opportunity to study abroad or take faculty-supervised trips abroad.  

You’ll also compete in events sponsored by the Southeastern Theatre Conference, the Association for Theatre in Higher Education and the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival.  

This program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre.
