The concentration in theatre offers the student the opportunity to study theatre as the written and spoken work combined with movement in the art of performance.
The play is studied for its literary qualities and as a blueprint for production. New, exciting approaches to interrogating the text and describing the complexity of its sign-system come from changes in the nature and function of literary criticism. While some courses include scene studies, others may be tied to on-campus productions.
Internships in the broad arena of theatre-related activities are possible and require significant dedication to skill development related to the specific focus of the individual internship.
Students have the ability to pursue a BA in English with a concentration in Theatre and/or a theatre minor.
