For its undergraduate major program, the Department of Theater Arts has three principal objectives: The attainment, by all of its majors, of a broad liberal arts education; Sufficient instruction to provide an appreciation of the different areas of theater; Direct experience in several aspects of theater production. Students study acting, directing, design, costume, lighting, stagecraft, history, dramatic literature, and theory. Courses in these fields are available to both majors and non majors. The theater arts department offers a cross-disciplinary and liberal-arts education. Pre professional courses provide vocational competence in teaching and in some aspects of commercial theater. Some students seek careers in commercial, educational, and community theaters as designers, actors, technicians, stage managers, or theater managers. Many continue specialized training in MFA degree programs or non degree professional training schools. Some students use their liberal-arts background to pursue vocational opportunities that require advanced skills in communication and organization.
