You can embrace all aspects of the dramatic arts here. Majors and nonmajors dance; act; direct; design; write; choreograph; stage-manage; and design and build sets, props, and costumes. You collaborate with experienced faculty, renowned choreographers, and multitalented fellow students in facilities that include Roberts Theatre, a recording studio, performance lab, dance studio, and costume studio. Internships are encouraged.  Majors pursue further education and/or careers in performing arts, communications, management, education, and more.
