Theatre Arts, Theatre Education Option

With the assistance of their advisors and with departmental approval, students follow a track of advanced courses specializing in the areas of Acting or Design/Technology or Theatre Education, or students may opt for advanced courses covering a broad range of study by selecting the General track.
