Program Director: Julia Reimer, Ph.D.
The study of the history, literature and artistic techniques in theater will provide the student with an integrated discipline that combines elements of most art and academic subjects, since theater employs all art forms to depict an image of life itself. The study of theater will provide supplemental preparation in the areas of teacher education, communication, group process, organization, aesthetics, public presentation and other skills valuable in a wide variety of fields, as well as preparation for graduate school, theater ministry or conservatory training.
