The department of Theatre offers concentrations in Theatre Arts, Theatre Education, and Theatre Performance as well as minors in Theatre Arts and Musical Theatre Performance.
The theatre arts concentration emphasizes a comprehensive theatre program within the liberal arts context. Students pursue a systematic course of study in performance, production, management, history, literature and criticism, which is enhanced by opportunities to participate in either performance or production in the department’s theatre season.
The theatre education program combines the content of the theatre program with additional learning to support Standard I requirements for licensure to teach theatre in public schools in Massachusetts.
The theatre performance concentration augments the broad based approach of the theatre arts concentration with the additional comprehensive course work in acting, voice and dance, preparing the student more thoroughly for entry-level performance occupations and graduate schools or conservatories.
