The Dr. Susan S. McKinney Department of Theatre provides students with a diverse, holistic theatre education. Participants partake in a rigorous four-year program that provides opportunities to explore the numerous facets of
the medium— resulting in well-rounded graduates that are ready to pursue professional or continuing academic endeavors.
Our unique series of courses allow students to experiment with acting, directing, design, and construction through academic analysis and practical application. With topics ranging from acting and career strategies to theatre history and literary interpretation, students graduate with skills that will enable them to find success in the classroom, audition hall, or boardroom.
A participant in the Arts Achieve Grant, a prestigious four-year study of arts education practice, our department strives to continually improve the experiences that we provide our dedicated student body through innovation, collaboration, and ingenuity--both in the classroom and on the stage.
