Why Study Theatre Arts?

The minor in Theatre Arts provides students with the opportunity to explore multiple forms of self-expression. Students are introduced to the practical tools necessary to communicate effectively through the theatre, the media, and technology. In addition, they investigate the historical and theoretical basis on which these art forms are based, giving them a strong foundation on which to pursue the many opportunities available to a student graduating with a minor in Theatre Arts. What was once the study of the live actor before a live audience now requires an investigation into the impact of technology and media on the practice of theatre. In this exciting and expanding discipline, students can study acting, design, and directing; immerse themselves in playwriting and media; and explore interactive computing technologies as a tool of study and a means of personal expression. Students who graduate with a minor in Theatre Arts may pursue theatre-related careers, go on to further study, or enter other professions such as law, business, publishing, advertising, communications, computer graphics, and public relations.
