A major in theatre arts prepares a student for a career in all aspects of theatre -- front-and-center or behind the scenes.
But the theatre arts major also offers an excellent foundation for careers or graduate study in other fields, as well --- including arts administration, business, education, and law.
In fact, theatre arts within the framework of Gettysburg's liberal arts environment enables students to practice and excel at communication, critical/creative thinking, teamwork, and even "project management" through the process of staging a performance. These experiences in theatre -- and the exposure to the wide variety of educational opportunities they offer -- can stimulate and impact life choices long after a student's four-year Gettysburg experience is complete.
