Learn to educate the actors of tomorrow
Becoming a first-rate drama teacher requires being equipped to provide education in the classroom and direction to students on the stage for a variety of ages and skill levels. Our theatre education students are equipped with a wide-ranging command of the knowledge and skills they will need to ensure their own students’ success.
Experience at every level
Every student concentrating in theatre education takes at least one course in acting, directing, stagecraft, costuming, lighting, makeup, design, theatre speech, movement, play analysis and theatre history. You will take a course in children’s theatre and direct at least one play and get experience directly working with high school students in our summer theatre camp. This ensures that you are equipped with the experience required when you begin your own educational career.
Those who can, teach
Our future teachers are more than welcome to participate in all roles at every level when it comes to SFA’s many production opportunities. All theatre majors are invited to work on stage or behind the scenes in a variety of ways, and we encourage every student to audition for everything they can! The best way to teach is with hands-on experience and there’s more than enough opportunities for productions of all sizes, all year long.
