The theatre arts major stresses a basic knowledge and appreciation for all facets of theatre work. Theatre arts graduates can work as actors, costumers, stage managers, set designers, lighting technicians, sound operators, stage carpenters, arts agency promoters, and stage directors, while others can go on to study theatre in graduate school in preparation for teaching or work in professional theatre.

The study of theatre may serve to foster students’ vocational interests as well as prepare them for more concentrated theatre studies in the future.

The theatre arts minor fits well with numerous majors including but not limited to Bible, business administration, English, film, history, humanities, and psychology.
