A Program of Professional Excellence

The Marquette Theatre program is a professionally focused, student-oriented program that offers a theoretical and practical liberal arts education with a social justice focus. Students work with professionals in the classroom as well as on set to develop their skills from acting, to lighting, stage and costume design, to technical production, stage and arts management. Students design and build sets, create costumes and bring characters to life on stage and on camera.

Marquette Theatre Majors are creators, collaborators, leaders and thinkers who are prepared to be the difference on the stage and off. The interdisciplinary program and professional training enables theatre majors to grow, adapt and change the world through the performing arts.

Theatre arts majors are required to purse a second minor or major in addition to their primary course of study. Students have found it beneficial to double major in any of the areas from across the university, thereby obtaining a broad range of connections between the performing arts and other disciplines.
