Theatre studies strengthen interpersonal communication and public presentation skills; develop critical thinking and collaborative skills; and give a solid background in interdisciplinary arts, social awareness, and appreciation of diverse cultures. Students who successfully complete this degree can go on to a baccalaureate institution to major in theatre, speech/communications, film/digital media, or related humanities or education fields.
