We know that your talents are just as unique as you are. Study in a students-first program that is small enough for everyone to know you as an individual, with a big enough community to connect you with professionals and career contacts after graduation. We'll immerse you in practical opportunities that will allow you to play to your strengths, while also offering you the attention to build up your weaknesses, making you ready to take the next step.
of Xavier Theatre students design their program around their interests
Get connected with professionals, including Tony award winners, who teach classes, host workshops, coordinate internships and direct and design Xavier productions. You can also participate in Xavier Theatre's new play development collaboration with NYC's Fault Line Theatre.
You don't have to pick just one emphasis. Your courses and opportunities can be a diverse lineup of acting, theatre technology, stagecraft, directing, playwriting and design. You can even double major.
Beginning your first year, you'll have the opportunity to be part of Xavier productions, and that includes the chance for leading roles. We'll also help you create your online portfolio, so you're ready for the next step after graduation.
