Selected students who wish to make Theater their main concentration work with the Theater Program Coordinator and an advisor to devise a program of study tailored to fit their specific needs, leading to an individualized Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theater. For example, some individualized Theater majors choose to focus on performance, in which case we advise them to take all of our Acting and Performance courses and possibly some Directing courses as well. They can also supplement this major with courses in Music, Communication, or the Media. Some theater students are interested in a double major. Students interested in playwriting or screenwriting, for example, may wish to combine their theater major with English or Literature. Students interested in Theater Management will combine their theater major with Management courses. Our goal is to meet the individual needs of each student.
The Individualized Theater Major can help prepare students for careers in the performing arts, art management, theater administration, marketing, the media, journalism, writing, public speaking and human relations.
