Today’s entertainment and theatre industry relies on innovative, creative, multi-taskers who forge their own path. Flagler College Theatre Arts program cultivates theatre artists who can meet this demand. Through course work and experiential learning, students gain skills and practical expertise in acting, directing, musical theatre, design, playwriting, applied theatre, and theatre education.
What You'll Study
Students may select to concentrate on a focused area of interest. Students receive individualized attention from faculty who actively guide them in their development throughout their time at Flagler College. This ranges from mentoring student designers on mainstage shows, overseeing capstone directing projects, or advising them on acting roles. Often students will approach faculty with “outside-the-box” project ideas which are generally encouraged and supported.
Students can supplement their theatre major with complementary minors in arts administration, music, education, or any of the myriad of minors Flagler offers. Pairing the theatre major with a minor supports students' artistic prowess, as well as makes them more marketable when pursuing work after graduation.
Staying current with trends in the theatre arts coupled with the relationships and networks built within the theatre department, there is something for everyone. Take a look at our outcome stories below to see how our graduates have applied their theatre skills to life after college.
