Carrie Coon '03

Major: English and Spanish
Job Title: Actress

I actually went to graduate school the very next year, after Dr. Hendel in the Department of Theatre introduced me to and helped me prepare for the University/Resident Theatre Auditions in Chicago.


Majoring in theatre is so much more than simply performing on stage. A solid knowledge of theory, history, literature and criticism is critical to the craft, and the various aspects involved in a singular production are numerous.

Our theatre degree program will expose you to all the necessary components of the field and offer you ample opportunities to “practice” what you learn.  From acting, lighting, sound and properties to stage and box office management, you will experience a variety offered from the field of theatre and will be prepared for career success.

Active participation in our theatrical productions supplements your classroom study, providing hands-on experience.
