While students will still learn the basics of technical theatre, acting and directing for the stage and camera will become the emphasis.
Students will also have the opportunity to study technical theatre, theatre history and playwriting in advanced courses.
Students interested in pursuing a major in Dramatic Arts are encouraged to seek guidance from program faculty or staff. For a full explanation of coming changes contact the Dramatic Arts Program.
While stage acting and directing opportunities are sought by many, much of the work today for actors and directors is in film, broadcast and other media. Our students increasingly find opportunities in television and radio commercials. The business is very competitive, so we provide instruction by those who are working in or have previous experience in the field.
Some graduates are working professional actors in Northeast Ohio and elsewhere. Others teach theatre or related media courses in colleges and high schools. Two of our graduates teach here at Cleveland State: one in Dramatic Arts and one in Communication. Others work in the allied fields of public relations and advertising. Some have gone on to advanced degrees in Dramatic Arts, Law Education and Business.
Cleveland State University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission, a commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
