As a theatre major, you can focus on performance, production, or musical theatre. If you’re interested in teaching, K–12 licensure is also available. In addition to preparing you for a career in the field, earning a degree in theatre will develop your critical and reflective thinking skills, as well as increase your understanding and appreciation of the arts.
Internships are a valuable way for theatre students to gain real-world, hands-on professional experience. Internships held by Meredith students include positions with Burning Coal Theatre Company and North Carolina Theatre. Graduates of Meredith’s theatre program have gone on to pursue graduate study, become theatre teachers in public school systems, and perform in award-winning productions on and off Broadway.
