Major to Career: Theatre

Theatre arts include acting, directing, playwriting, costuming, set design, and literature. Students study human ideas, values, relationships, obsessions and accomplishments through practical experimentation, so they can present human experiences to audiences for both entertainment and enlightenment.

Students of theatre receive a well-rounded theatre education from both experiential learning and coursework. A major portion of student experience comes from participation in theatrical productions. BYU-Idaho's program offers training in various aspects of theatre including technical theatre, acting, directing, dance, dramatic literature, playwriting and arts management.

Theatre students usually have a desire to express themselves and have an interest in aesthetics. They are creative, determined and imaginative. Theatre students must also have dedication, confidence and physical stamina.
