Welcome Message

It is an exciting time for the Theatre program at the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences!

Under the leadership of an immensely talented faculty and staff, students explore all areas of theater including: acting, directing, technical theatre, management, design, theatre history, and musical theatre. We offer a major and a minor in theatre, with all classes also open to non-majors.

The college's theatre ensemble, NSU Theatre, produces a variety of productions annually. Involvement in these productions is open to all students, faculty, staff, and members of the community. Whether you are interested in becoming a major or minor, or just interested in participating in productions, we have a spot for you!

Why Choose This Major?

  • Students in this program learn about the place performance holds in history, from ritual to activism to live stage productions.
  • Students gain an appreciation for the ways theatre reflects world views and reflects social norms, despite differences in culture, religion, politics, and language.
  • The program enables students to improve their own ability to think critically, to push yourself to be creative, and to connect with a larger group or community of people through collaboration.
