The impulse toward theatre is universal. Wherever human society has developed so has the drive to create, educate, and entertain. Theatre is a way of seeing men and women in action, of observing what they do and why they do it. Because human beings are the subject and the means of expression, theatre is one of the most immediate ways of experiencing what it means to be human. Individuals who explore the world of theatre grow in understanding of cultural diversity, self-knowledge, communications skills, and self-expression. With numerous opportunities for “hands-on” performance and technical experiences, coupled with invaluable classroom academics, the Theatre Program at Sul Ross offers a practical general overview of the performance and technical aspects of theatre.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre prepares students to pursue professional advanced degrees in acting, directing, playwriting, design, and technical production. In addition, an all-level teacher certification is also available. Students may choose from three degree plans including Acting and Directing, Technical Design and Production, or Film Production.
Graduate hours in Theatre may be used for a Master of Education degree or a Master of Arts in Liberal Arts.
