The undergraduate program invites students into the exciting and ever-expanding discipline of Theatre Arts by providing a wide variety of courses and opportunities for them to enhance their knowledge, stimulate their interests, and spark their creative self-expression. These include, but are not limited to:  acting, directing, design, stagecraft, playwriting, media arts, interactive computing technologies, history and theory. Integral to the Theatre Arts training and learning process is practice. Productions, which range from contemporary and classic plays, to original and devised works, are mounted in our labs, in our studio theatres, on our main stage, or in site-specific venues. Collaboration is the key element in all of our investigations and creative work. Experimentation and student-initiated projects are encouraged and supported.

We offer a B.A. degree in Theatre Arts (58 credits), a minor in Theatre Arts  (22 credits), and a Media Arts minor (21 credits).

Students graduate from this program with a strong background in the liberal arts and theatre arts. After graduation they may pursue theatre-related careers, go on to further study, or enter other professions such as law, business, teaching, advertising, communications, computer graphics and public relations.
