Theatre Studies

The Theatre Studies concentration is aimed at students wishing to gain a comprehensive understanding of performance, production, and theatre scholarship. The concentration serves students who may choose to either continue on to an MA or PhD program, or those who wish to gain the creative, collaborative and intellectual assets of a theatre curriculum that will serve them in careers in theatre and beyond. The Theatre Studies concentration provides students with a broad understanding of the craft of theatre and allows the student the maximum flexibility in tailoring their own course of study.


  • Allows students the ability to tailor the degree based on their interests in theatre.
  • Prepares students for graduate coursework in theatre history, criticism, and historiography.
