Theatre Minor

Undergraduate Minor in Theatre

Theatre is one of the oldest communal activities of man, building relationship while providing an opportunity to pursue personal artistic development. The Theatre minor or emphasis for students of any major provides a comprehensive training in acting technique, theatre history, and knowledge of dramatic literature. Our goal is to prepare you with skills developed in theatre training that can be used in any career — communication skills, problem-solving, cooperation, and initiative. The minor also provides you with an understanding of how to pursue theatre and acting with excellence. Theatre Scholarships may also be available for students who audition.

Theatre at CCU

While at times the arts can seem bleak and devoid of spiritual quality, our School of Music is dedicated to producing artists and performers who are both skilled and spiritually grounded. You'll be taught to recognize God as the first and greatest storyteller. Faculty who teach in the School of Music have received expert education, and aim to integrate faith and learning by striving for excellence in all things — glorification of God through worship as well as through impeccable artistry. Likewise, as a student in the Theatre minor, you'll be given the opportunity to audition for and perform in School of Music plays and musicals, practicing those pursuits for yourself.
