This program is offered by the Theatre Department
The Theatre with Specialization in Performance program guides students in the practical application of techniques and theory, plus personal awareness, to prepare them for productive participation in an increasingly diverse and multicultural world. Electives in this specialization include Shakespearean Production, Modern Dance and Theory, Advanced Voice Development, and Principles of Choreography, among others. Theatre majors participate in a season of plays and other theatrical events; work with area high school students in outreach programs; and often perform with Hartford, New Haven, and other regional theatre groups.

- Technique: Students will demonstrate the mastery of performance craft by applying research to a practical or theoretical creation.
- Collaboration: Students will demonstrate the ability to work in a team in an environment reflective of professional theatre practice.
- Productivity: Students will exhibit preparedness by actively participating in the mounting of productions.
