Theatre, Performance Option
English is a broad major that allows students to focus on a number of areas of study such as literature, linguistics, and both creative writing and practical writing. Attention is given to gender and culture issues in literature and language courses. Students develop the ability to communicate and a sense of humanity that is increasingly recognized as a valuable tool in the workplace. In the theatre program students focus on the literary traditions and performance arts that come together in the theatrical experience, preparing students for lifelong engagement with the arts while providing a solid foundation for graduate study or any profession that requires teamwork and creativity.
