The Theatre minor at Ozarks centers on the core belief that by modeling professionalism during rehearsals, labs, projects, classes, and internships, students will develop skills which make them more marketable and diverse. We seek to educate students in all aspects of the theatrical arts. Analytical skills, problem solving, creativity, and cooperative endeavors are promoted through participation in theatre productions. Students with a minor in theatre are prepared to incorporate these skills into other major or minor fields.
Students with a minor in theatre are prepared to incorporate the diverse skills in a wide range of professions.
The emphasis in advanced critical thinking, problem solving, versatility, communication, empathy, and collaboration complement many other fields of study.
