With our musical theater concentration, you can hone your creativity and build community so that you can serve more fully in a variety of careers. By combining theater with our interdisciplinary music major, you will learn techniques of voice training with core courses in music, theater techniques with core courses in theater, and take electives in both theater and music to enhance your knowledge and skills in both areas.

Annual musical productions will give you many opportunities to practice your new skills and hone your stage presence. A senior capstone project puts you at center stage, putting everything you’ve learned into practice in one finale project.
