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 Majors

Ohio Wesleyan's theatre program gives you two different majors, with many options for beyond-the-classroom learning, so you can create a program that fits your interests and career goals.

Theatre major: Students in the Theatre major are expected to be involved in a production each semester. 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.

Theatre Education major: OWU offers the teaching license in theatre education, which can be completed within four years on campus. To receive the state’s Multi-age License in Drama and Theatre, you will major in Theatre and minor in Education. During your senior year you will complete a senior project and a semester of student teaching.
