Theatre (Minor)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The purpose of the theatre minor at Utica College is to train students in the effective deployment of theatrical storytelling within their future professions and citizenship. We in the Department of Performing & Fine Arts believe that the art of theatrical storytelling is a continuous exercise in empathy, enabling theatre artists and audiences to imagine themselves into the places of others, gain emotionally engaged knowledge about their situations, and use that empathetic perspective to build community across differences. Our minor educates students in this empathetic aspect of theatre, preparing them to be informed, engaged, and compassionate audiences who will transform their consumption of art into meaningful citizenship. The interdisciplinary focus of our program provides practical training in theatre-making that pairs easily with students’ majors to prepare them for future careers in education, law, the health professions, and other fields that employ theatrical skills as a supplement to their primary occupations.
