What Can I Do with A Degree in Theatre Arts?
|Theatre is an artistic expression in which actors and actresses
perform in front of a live audience. But Theatre majors do more
than just act on stage - your college experience will involve productions, of course, but your role in those productions will vary widely. Theatre majors get experience in stage management, directing, stage lighting, costuming, set design, and script writing. Students will be prepared for careers requiring people with the ability to write and speak, to think creatively and independently, to understand the great complexities of the human
condition, and to collaborate with others on a group project.
