Curriculum

Production Design and Technology Option

Students in the Production Design and Technology option will develop the knowledge of all aspects of design including scenic, costume, lighting and sound as well as gain the skill sets to create and realize their work. They will be given the opportunity to collaborate on productions with the assistance of the faculty. The curriculum will begin with an overview that explores the broader scope of theatre design and production. Upper level courses will allow the students to focus on their area of expertise. The capstone experience will require the student to apply their knowledge by realizing a design or production project under the supervision of the faculty.
