PROFESSOR ANNETTE MCGREGOR, B.A., M.A., Ph.D.

This program offers the theatre student a general background in the various facets of theatre. A broad liberal education is provided and complemented with advanced courses to best serve student interests, talents, and career objectives. Though a strong emphasis is given to the areas of production and performance, majors may also wish to emphasize an area of special interest such as literature, design or acting. Many students choose to spend a semester in study abroad.

Students learn to research, analyze and synthesize information. Majors develop strong oral and written skills and many go on to postgraduate study not only in theatre but in areas such as law, business and education.

Entrance criteria to this major include an audition or interview with members of the Theatre faculty.

For the B.A. degree in Theatre, a minimum of 120 credits is required.
