Theatre classes encourage confidence and self-expression, and the right theatre teacher can make a significant difference in their students’ lives. As a major in the theatre education degree program, you’ll study the science of teaching while exploring the full spectrum of producing theatre. From the beginning, you’ll be observing actual classrooms to see theories put into action. At Bluefield University, your theatre and education studies work together in order to prepare you to succeed in the classroom. This solid foundation prepares you to serve your community as a servant leader.
The Stage is Your Classroom
Theatre education majors, like our theatre majors, are expected to participate in five productions each academic year in Harman Auditorium. Two of the five are children’s theatre productions as part of Bluefield Youth Theatre. From acting and directing to all the roles backstage, you’ll be part of the BU theatre family. And at the end of your studies, the theatre education program prepares you for Virginia licensure, so you’re ready to teach once you graduate.
We invite you to take a virtual tour of Bluefield University to get a preview look at Harman Auditorium, home to the theatre department and center of religious life on campus.
