Curriculum for Theatre Majors

The Butler program offers a choice of two theatre degrees:

The program of study in theatre combines stage experience with core studies in: acting, directing, voice, movement, playwriting; scenic, lighting and costume design; stagecraft and make-up; theatre history, play analysis and critical theory.

The program of study in arts administration is designed to provide students with a cohesive preparation for professional work in the management of arts organizations, particularly in areas relating to the administration of theatre. Through balanced study in theatre, business (accounting, economics, marketing, etc.), and communications (public relations, advertising, information management, etc.), students gain a broad spectrum of skills in a collaborative environment.

Both programs are structured to enable students to pursue a secondary major or minor of their choice.
