English - Theater

Program Type
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

An English/Theatre major emphasizes traditional English skills such as writing, critical thinking, and literary analysis, as well as performance skills including acting, directing, and design. English/Theatre students become active members in both the English and Theatre departments. This concentration allows students to expand their studies of writing and literature into the world of Theatre by taking courses in the History of Theatre, Contemporary Drama, and Playwriting. Students also have the opportunity to explore the Theatre outside of the textbook by studying Stage and Lighting Design, Make-up, and Directing. Students work together to construct each school production, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary pieces, musicals to comedies, and are encouraged to participate in collegiate level speech and theatre competitions. The English Department already offers a minor in Theatre for those students interested in Theatre but desiring majors in other fields of study.
