A half-major in theatre combined with another half-major in a complementary field allows performing arts students to develop the critical skills needed to discover, to interpret, and to evaluate social ideas before they consider how to creatively translate critical thoughts into effective images on stage. Similarly, students whose major resides in media, screen studies, communication, digital technologies, visual arts, music, architecture as well as the sciences, history, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, human services, and so on will find theatre studies courses and activities helpful as they work across the curriculum with the intent to develop a critical framework and a set of skills that enrich their understanding of the human condition through interpreting and creating stage-worthy images.
