What will I learn?

The B.S./B.A. degree program offers students the tools and direction to enter the professional Theatre industry, graduate study in Theatre, or work in a related field. Students have the opportunity to explore the broad world of Theatre while discovering and developing their own areas of interest and emphasis, gaining hands-on experience in performance, design, technology, management, playwriting, and advanced academic studies. Students develop résumé and portfolio materials, learn to network with industry professionals, and are encouraged to work professionally through employment opportunities and internships. The rich array of professional quality theatre, musical theatre, and dance productions each year give students a chance to immediately apply what is learned in the classroom, and new works and outreach initiatives allow students to experiment with creating and producing their own work.

As you begin your degree program, you’ll become a part of the theatre department’s first-year initiative and Creative Habit Community. During this first year, you’ll receive an official introduction to theatre and world literature to help set the stage for your future theatrical studies. You’ll also be given opportunities to audition and volunteer to help with the department’s exciting season of shows from Shakespeare’s tragedies to high-spirited and comedic musicals. As you progress further into the program, you’ll experience hands-on training related to performance and production as well as learn more about theatre history as well as the art of directing and producing. Throughout your academic career, you’ll also have the opportunities to audition for roles or work on design management and/or technical theatre crews.

Within TROY’s theatre department, you’ll be surrounded by seasoned faculty members who are dedicated to seeing you succeed on and off the stage. These talented men and women are excited to share their experiences and provide you with opportunities to create new skills and techniques that will help you find success as a member of the theatre world.
