We practice what we teach.

You'll learn the ins and outs of theatre from practicing professionals – from actors to technicians to front-of-the-house personnel. Our professors and guest artists have performed all over the world, from Atlanta to Los Angeles to Northern Ireland. With them as your guides, you'll take 48 semester hours for the major including both classroom and practical experience.

A total of 48 semester hours are required for the Theatre Arts Major.
