To immerse is to learn. That's why students in the Theatre Arts Program are required to be involved in every facet of theatre – from design and technologies to writing, acting and directing. Whether pursuing a concentration in Acting, Musical Theatre, Design or Technical Production, students will learn in the classroom, behind the scenes and on the stage.
Shaped by a faculty of working professionals, the Theatre Arts Program at WCU takes a collaborative, hands-on approach. Whether you're a freshman or a senior, we provide you with high-quality, intensive learning experiences through our innovative curriculum.
You’ll enjoy our program's smaller class sizes and spirit of innovation as well as the many special opportunities available to you as a member of the school. The Theatre Arts Program prepares students for professional careers or graduate studies.
