The Theater Studies program is a component of a liberal education, and is dedicated to integrating academic study and theater practice. The program offers introductory and advanced courses that combine theory and practice with an emphasis on educating well-rounded theater creators for both the academic and professional spheres. Students will have the opportunity to work on both scripted and devised productions and do in-depth research and analysis. Rather than a focus on individual disciplines such as acting, directing, design and technical theater, the program integrates this knowledge into a series of variable topic courses that examine performance from various perspectives. Many of these courses have presentation or performance outcomes.
