The theatre arts curriculum at Pitt-Johnstown offers a training program according to professional theatrical standards, but also prepares students for careers that involve public presentations (for example, law, business, and education), event design and coordination, and arts marketing and management.
The theatre arts major includes courses in the following areas:
- theatre design
- stage management
- technical support
- theatre history and literature
Students from theatre arts, alongside other majors, audition for two mainstage productions each year as well as for numerous small, experimental productions including Golgonooza, the student play festival. Credit can be earned by performing in, managing, designing, or serving on run crew for a show.
