Grounded in the liberal arts, the study of theater at St. Olaf is balanced, well-rounded, and exhilarating. The focus of the theater major is the making of dramatic art, but liberally educated students also explore subjects such as psychology, literature, political science, and history that add depth and breadth to their theatrical education.
Theater majors learn to be independent thinkers and critical reviewers of both their own work and that of others, able to distinguish between popular approval and true artistic success. St. Olaf’s nationally accredited theater studies program meets the standards of the National Association of Schools of Theatre.
