As a Theatre major at Franciscan University of Steubenville, you will gain a strong foundation in the study and practice of five major areas of the theatre arts — acting, literature, history, directing, and stagecraft and design — while preparing for a lifetime of creating and appreciating the fine arts.
Study topics such as Professional Auditioning and Theory of Theatre, in which you will pursue the questions: What constitutes good theatre and what should the role of theatre in society be? You can also choose one of two concentrations: performance and dramatic literature. The theatre degree program culminates in your designing and directing a one-act play for the Franciscan University community in Ohio.
