The Department of Theatre Arts offers courses in Acting, Improvisation, Theatre History, Theatres of Diversity, Dance, Film, Screenwriting, and Studio Theatre Production. Theatre students learn how to act and interact freely and spontaneously, develop strong focus and concentration, work cooperatively with scene partners and in groups, and express themselves with clarity and confidence. Each semester students get the opportunity to act in a fully staged theatre production. 

All professions, whether in the arts or business sectors, benefit from a creative, imaginative, innovative, and articulate workforce. We can help you to acquire these skills in the Theatre Arts Department.
