A broad liberal arts education in theatre produces
graduates who are adaptable and self-directed and serves as a foundation for
future development as thinking artists and productive citizens. Our graduates
are well prepared for a lifetime of appreciation, participation and further
study in the performing arts.
In the Workforce
Our graduates are members of the Actors Equity
Association and the Screen Actors Guild and work across the country, from New
York City to regional theatre to Broadway touring companies.
Many of our graduates go on to teach theatre. Some
receive their certification and serve in public classrooms, while others are
teaching artists in after-school and summer programs. Some have even started
their own educational theatre companies to bring interactive drama to students.
Our graduates are marketing directors, grant writers and
arts managers at theatre companies large and small throughout the United States.
Students with a bachelor's degree in theatre arts
are qualified to apply to graduate programs for the M.F.A. in acting, directing
or design or the Ph.D. in theatre history or dramaturgy. Others pursue graduate
study in a wide variety of disciplines.
