OWU theatre students study and experience all aspects of theatre and dance. Performance, production, history, and theory are all part of a comprehensive, liberal arts approach to the art form.

About the major

Theatre majors are expected to be involved in a production each semester. Close relationships with students and faculty arise from these rich experiences. In addition to classes and on-campus programs, majors are encouraged to take advantage of off-campus internships or study experiences during their junior year or first semester of their senior year. The OWU New York Arts Program provides excellent career-oriented experiences for those with acting, directing, design, production, or dance interests. Students focusing on theatre history or theory might consider opportunities in Europe.
