Students majoring in Drama receive an education in the core foundations of the discipline, and then are afforded the opportunity to focus their artistic and educational interests in order to prepare themselves for specific careers. The department’s theatre production laboratory, Theatre UNCA, as well as independent productions and professional internship opportunities, provide majors with the opportunity to test the theories and practices they study in the classroom in theatrical presentations for the public. The combination of classroom and practical theatre production learning and collaboration allows Drama majors to engage their creative and critical thinking while honing their skills as artists.
