The Theatre Arts Major (BA)

Associate Professor: Fonzie Geary II
Assistant Professor: Maggie Gayle

Dramatic art represents the culmination of all arts put forth for the purpose of advancing human interaction, reflecting and challenging broader culture, and fostering a firmer sense of the individual self. Students investing in the study of dramatic art will develop skills in oral communication, research methods, interpersonal relationships, and team building collaboration. In addition, students will develop skills in the critical evaluation of text and performance in a variety of perspectives including theoretical, cultural, and historical as a means of better understanding the world around them.

Theatre arts are required to participate in all Harlequin Theatre productions in some capacity.
