Theatre Studies

Theatre Studies provides students with a broad-based knowledge of the theatre field and underscores the relationship between what happens on stage and what takes place in the world around us. A small common core of courses in dramatic literature, history and interdisciplinary performance emphasize the link between page and stage and theatre and society.
