The Theater Major offers a comprehensive study of Theater in four areas, Acting, Directing/Stage Management, Design/Technical Theater, and Dramatic Literature. Courses are offered in acting (stage, film/TV), directing, stagecraft, set design, lighting design, costume design, stage management, arts management, dramatic literature, theater history, and dance. Through a high level of active participation, students gain a broad perspective in all areas of theater while developing individual talents and skills in their chosen area of concentration. The Theater program produces four major productions each year directed by faculty and professional guest directors. The main season is supplemented by a variety of student directed projects and guest artist workshops.

Classes and productions take place in the Angelica and Russ Berrie Center for the Performing and Visual Arts. This facility offers a 340 seat proscenium theater, a flexible experimental performance space, a dance studio/rehearsal hall, and fully equipped costume and scenery shops. All performance spaces feature state of the art lighting and sound equipment.

Teacher certification with a Theater major certifies students to teach grades K through 12. The program requires a combined course of study in Teacher Certification and completion of the Theater major. Students should refer to the Teacher Certification Program description in this Catalog, which outlines the requirements, and should seek faculty advisement.

Graduates of the Theater program have gone on to graduate school while others have established careers in the professional theater as actors, directors, designers, and stage managers.
The required auditions/interviews for prospective majors are held four times yearly.

Students completing this program receive a B.A. degree. A minor is available.
