About the Drama Program Undergraduate Degrees

    The School of the Arts offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in drama and teacher certification. The drama division develops well-rounded theatre artists who have the ability to function creatively and skillfully in a variety of theatre situations. Committed to top quality theatre performance and excellence in the classroom, the program provides practical as well as academic training for students pursuing careers in professional and educational theatre.

    Students are offered two degree concentrations; acting/directing or technical/design.  Course work in these areas permits a students to develop a gprogram of study which focuses attention on the desired area as well as on the relationship of all theatrical elements to the whole production process. Essential to a complete course of study in theatre is the student's opportunity to work as performer and technician in the TWU theatre season.  The practical processes of theatre production as well as academic study are stressed in order to give students a broad and diverse theatre background.

    Drama major students also have the opportunity to add a Music Theatre Certificate to their degree plan.  While this is not a degree in musical theatre, students will participate in performance, directing and history courses that prepare them to work in musical theatre, in both professional and educational settings.  

Course requirements and degree plans for a drama major, minor and the music theatre certificate can be found in the online TWU Course Catalog
