It is recommended that those students intending to pursue a career and/or advanced studies in the field of Theater or related performing arts consider declaring a major in Theater. The major program of study is designed to allow students the flexibility of pursuing general theater studies while focusing on a particular emphasis within the Theater curriculum, such as acting, directing, history/criticism, production/design, stage management, and arts management.
Students who intend to major in Theater should identify a faculty advisor, or talk with the chair. An advisor is, ideally, someone in the student’s area of intended concentration, and with whom they’ve already completed one or more courses. The student will then schedule an appointment with their advisor or the chair and work closely with them to design a plan of study.
