​Theatre Job Outlook​​

Theatre prepares you for many career options.​


Graduates with an emphasis in production design and technology, or even simply an interest in technical theatre are likely to be in demand with skills in scenery, lighting, costumes, and sound. Still others find a career in the business side of theatre as box office managers, publicity directors, producers, agents and casting directors. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics  is a good resource when determining where your theatre degree can take you.

Our multi-age drama/theatre education majors are well-equipped to teach children from early childhood through high school.  More opportunities are available in the mass media of television and film.
