Theatre Minor

The Theatre program offers a minor in Theatre which combines academic training with hands-on experience in a well-rounded program that encourages experience in all areas of theatre. Acting skills and directing techniques are at the heart of the minor, along with coursework that includes practice in theatrical writing, personal histories, secular and sacred literature, history and the compilation of literature into performance art.

The theatre minor operates in association with the Xavier Players Theatre of Conscience philosophy, which complements the core investigations of ethics, religion and society espoused by Xavier.
