Theatre Program Top of Page

Theatre is often called, the most collaborative of all the arts. In that spirit, UW-Superior's Theatre Program is dedicated to offering a diverse range of courses that prepare students for rewarding careers. This hands-on approach prepares graduates for employment not only in the theatrical discipline, but also for work in fields as diverse as teaching, tourism, sales, advertising, human resources and radio and television.

Theatre at UW-Superior is an active and growing program. Our students actively participate in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF) as well as other regional and national theatre organizations.

Note: Production, rehearsal, or laboratory work is required in many courses in theatre. (A maximum of six semester credits of practica/independent study may be applied toward the requirements for any B.A. or B.S. major. A maximum of three semester credits of practica/independent study credits may be applied toward the requirements for the minor.) Additional practica/independent study credits may be elected and applied toward graduation but do not count toward the major or minor. Student involvement in University Theatre productions is required.
