Theatre programs

Students say the collaborative, excellence-oriented environment of Northwestern’s theatre program is unlike anything they’ve ever experienced. The program’s goal is to help you as a theatre artist develop your creative gifts for service in God’s kingdom. That will happen as you:

  • Commit to ensemble work
  • Emphasize process over product
  • Cultivate a servant’s heart in every role

Writing your own lines

Northwestern’s program offers a unique playwriting focus with courses in one-act and full-length script writing. The annual World Premiere Festival is a chance for student playwrights to see their own work on stage.

Arts Administration Minor

The Arts Administration Minor requires students to major in a fine arts program (Art, Music or Theatre). This minor builds on a student's existing artistic base earned from their fine arts major. It is intended to equip students with the direction and practical skills needed to help art flourish in the larger culture. Possible applications might include entry-level administrative positions in theatre companies, art galleries, symphonies and other community-based arts organizations.
