Introduction to the Department

Theatre ClassThe Department of Theatre & Dance at Ohio Wesleyan encourages students—beginning in their first year—to get involved onstage, backstage, and in the classroom. Within the context of the liberal arts, we offer pre-professional training in the traditional areas of acting and directing, dance, technical theatre and design, stage management, theatre education, playwriting, literature and history, and arts management.

Many students in our department double major in another discipline, such as English, Politics & Government, Economics, Health & Human Kinetics, Zoology, Modern Foreign Languages, and Psychology.
