The Concentration

The Department offers a concentration in Theatre Arts and Performance Studies. Concentrators chose one of the following "tracks" to study within the concentration:

Each track has a requirement of ten (10) courses to fulfill the concentration and culminates in a collective senior seminar in which concentrators work with advisers to present a culminating project, as well as explore possibilities for careers in their area of study after graduation.

If your interest lies in acting and directing, dance, design, and the history and craft of theatre-making -- consider the Theatre Arts track.

For the broad spectrum of  live art, including dance, in global, historical, and theoretical perspective -- consider the Performance Studies track.

For the writing of plays or performance-based live art (including dance)  -- consider the Writing for Performance track. 

As a student, you can be involved in the Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies whether you become a concentrator or simply take a single course.
