Minor in Theatre

Discover how to pursue theatre and acting with excellence.

Theatre is one of the oldest communal activities of man, building relationship while providing an opportunity to pursue personal artistic development. Offered through the School of Music, 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.

About the School of Music

The School of Music equips students with the necessary skills to become expressive artists and effective communicators from a Christian perspective through the discipline of music. Our students use music and theatre to impact culture for Christ, to honor Him, and to share His love on campus and around the world. Opportunities are open to students of all majors and include national and international tours for major ensembles and an on-campus recording studio.

Become a leader in both the world and the church as you learn to combine a progressive and distinctly Christian worldview with classical, jazz, contemporary, and world music. Academic programs range from Music Performance, Music Education, and Music Composition to Worship Arts, Theatre, and Dance. You'll get personal attention from exceptional, creative, and caring faculty who are themselves active performers and clinicians who desire to not only teach, but to also mentor students.
