Mission Statement

The mission of the theatre program is to provide a nurturing and challenging artistic environment that celebrates our history and anticipates our future and to enhance the cultural and aesthetic experience of our campus and community through quality productions and educational outreach.

Graduation Requirements

Some courses taken for the major will simultaneously fulfill general education requirements. Please see the Graduation Requirements (bachelor’s degrees) section of this catalog for information on the general education program.

Students should note that the major provides fewer than the required 39 hours of 3000-4000 level coursework, therefore students will need to complete additional 3000-4000 level coursework to meet this requirement.
