As a theatre major, you can focus on performance, production, or musical theatre. If you’re interested in teaching, K–12 licensure is also available. In addition to preparing you for a career in the field, earning a degree in theatre will develop your critical and reflective thinking skills, as well as increase your understanding and appreciation of the arts.


The Meredith College Theatre program entertains and educates the Meredith College community and the Triangle area with four main-stage productions and up to four student led productions each year. Theatre majors can expect a rigorous training program and will receive ample opportunity to perform, manage, and design based upon her drive and area of interest. We offer a B.A. in Theatre, a K-12 Licensure in Theatre, and a Musical Theatre concentration. The faculty are all active professionally in their area of expertise and frequently offer students the opportunity to gain experience outside the college campus.
