As a theater major, you may find yourself enrolled in a variety of courses, from theater history and criticism to acting and directing, design and production. This coursework, coupled with participation in the Calvin Theatre Company, prepares you for success at the next level, whether that is in an entry-level theatre position, a paid internship or formal graduate study.
