Theatre Professor Richard Breen will see you at the Expo! At Averett University, the dramatic arts are one of humanity’s oldest means of expression. Stories told in theatres have had a profound impact on culture, society, and politics, in addition to providing entertainment. Averett University offers a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre that teaches students the skills and knowledge they need to carry on this tradition of storytelling, with a thorough grounding in acting, writing, stagecraft, directing, and more.

Students in the Theatre major can pursue the following three concentration options:

  • Theatre
  • Theatre Arts with Teaching Licensure (Pre-K – 12)
  • English and Theatre

All three concentration options include hands-on experience in our Theatre practicum, which gets students involved in the production of plays for the Averett community and local children. The experience of putting on a show teaches critical teamwork and collaboration skills, along with independence and confidence in one’s own skills.
