Susquehanna's theatre program's strengths include its state-of–the-art facilities, full-time faculty with impressive academic and professional credentials, and coursework that challenges students both academically and artistically. Students are immersed in the theatre community and the craft from their very first semester on campus.
A robust production season provides numerous opportunities for majors to work with classmates and faculty mentors. Productions are integrated with theatre curriculum, and act as labs where students can put learned theories into practice. The department's emphasis on the ensemble, in the tradition of the Moscow Art Theatre, provides for camaraderie and collaboration.
Susquehanna theatre majors are more than ready to take on advanced study in graduate programs as well as work in the professional theatre.
