* Students majoring in theatre with a concentration in media production will focus on audio, video, lighting, and stage production for film, television, and new media.

* With classes in makeup, costuming, sculpture, mold making, and opportunities for props and mask work, the costuming/cosplay concentration will provide students an exciting set of in-demand skills and experiences ​that prepare​s them for worthwhile careers in the field.

*Students majoring in theatre with a concentration in education will blend studies in traditional areas of theatre with ​required courses from the university’s College of Education ​that prepares them for lifelong work with students. Students will have both in-class and out-of-class opportunities to gain practical experience and technical proficiency, including those gained through campus-based theatrical productions and internships with local employers.
