Our department—first in the field in the state of Georgia, emerging from one of the oldest collegiate dramatic clubs in the country—promotes the study and practice of dramatic art across all cultures and in all its current media, including: stage, film theory and history, computer animation, motion capture, interactive media, and robotics. Our alumni have entered a wide variety of careers from stage to screen to academia, business, and more.
We offer two Bachelor of Arts (AB) degrees—the A.B. in Theatre and the A.B. in Film Studies—as well as undergraduate minors in theatre and film studies. Both undergraduate programs are liberal arts degrees providing an exposure to several fields of knowledge in the physical, biological and social sciences, the humanities and the arts while also allowing a concentration in theatre or in film studies. Roughly 50% or more of our theatre majors pursue second majors or dual degrees, which is encouraged and usually manageable within four years.
