Theatre B.A.

The Theatre Degree provides a program of study for those students who share an intense joy in what performing and producing plays can do for participants and audience members alike; and, who further seek to share the profound ways that theatre and drama can raise significant questions or communicate insight about the human condition. As a discipline it further focuses on skills that apply to a wide range of careers in the “real world.” Someone has said that if you are successful in theatre - especially in a smaller educational environment - you have learned how to improvise in the face of various challenges, how to manage projects, to work with limited budgets, to interact and empathize with a wide range of different people, to do humbly whatever needs to be done to make an enterprise successful, to work hard, to make tough decisions, to motivate by convincingly presenting ideas to others and to work contentedly but diligently with the circumstances you are given. The generalist program intends to supply a framework for that development to take place.
