The theatre major at Virginia Wesleyan University is a creative, yet challenging educational program. On stage, backstage, and in the classroom theatre students gain experience in all aspects of theatre. Majors and minors will encounter practical, theoretical, and critical perspectives on theatrical performance, production, history and dramatic literature from Ancient Greece to the present. The multi-faceted nature of the program covers a variety of specialties that assists graduates in adapting to an exciting and fast-paced profession.
At various times throughout the program, students are required to meet with faculty members to assess their development as an artist and plan for their future involvement in the Senior Capstone Experience. The Capstone Experience is a system of study tailored to the needs of each individual student. This process of study requires that theatre majors complete advanced creative and scholarly work to prepare them for future employment in the field or for graduate school.
