Theatre Learning Objectives
Theatre students will benefit from a foundation in all aspects of theatre and will have opportunities to participate actively in campus theatre productions. A major in theatre will help you gain knowledge in theory, history, literature and criticism.
The Department of Theatre productions will supplement classroom study, providing hands-on experience. Exposure to acting, lighting, sound, properties and stage and box office management will prepare you for career success.
On-campus opportunities include independent research, workshops and guest lectures.
After completing a theatre degree at the University of Mount Union, students will:
- Effectively apply analytical and critical skills in understanding and evaluating play scripts, theatrical performances, and theatre criticism
- Demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental skills important to each area of theatrical production: acting, directing, design, technical production

- Recognize and solve problems inherent in ethical theatrical production
- Demonstrate an understanding of the history of theatre, with particular attention to the evolution of stylistic and aesthetic trends
