The act of creating—of making something, such as a piece of music, a work of theater or a new dance—is a uniquely human endeavor in which all cultures engage.
The thrill of creating and performing is both intellectually and viscerally satisfying to the artist and the audience. Also, more than any other discipline, the performing arts can enhance self-confidence, creative thinking and public-presentation skills. Emmanuel allows for every student, not only majors and minors, to actively engage in this exciting discipline that combines creativity, technique, historical awareness and insight into the human condition.
With a robust minor in theater arts, and an opportunity to craft your own Individualized Major in Theater Arts, you can immerse yourself in the dramaturgical analysis of plays, styles of acting and the exploration of theatrical design and production.
