Our major program is designed on a “contract” basis and is tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual student.
Every theatre major receives a thorough education throughout all aspects of theatre and drama and is able to use that education as the building block for a focus in their preferred area of theatre.
We ask our majors to meet with their theatre advisors as soon as possible to begin a major contract in order to tailor their curriculum to their specific interest. Sophomore and junior theatre majors fill out a student interview form and meet with the faculty annually to make sure they’re on track.

Double and Composite Majors
Students with a broader range of academic interests have options when pursuing their major in theatre.
- COMPOSITE MAJORS
- Some of our students have tailored their course of study by choosing a composite major. While we don’t offer a musical theatre major within the department, students have worked with the departments of theatre, music, and dance and the registrar to form a musical theatre composite major.
- DOUBLE MAJORS
Several students have successfully completed a second major while pursuing a theatre major. Here are some of the majors our alumni have completed:
- Political science
